A Little Before & After Fun - Annie Sloan Chalk Painted Hutch

This solid, well made, heavy hutch was picked up at my local thrift store for TEN dollars and transformed with a little paint. (spray paint AND Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®)
What a difference a little paint makes!! Now it shines...

My absolute favorite color in the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® line! Aubusson Blue.
Isn't is just beautiful???
I used Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint on the handles and Graphite Chalk Paint® for the top. More details are in the post linked below.
Scroll all the way to the bottom of this page to see the link.
This is what the little hutch looked like when I found it.
Can you believe it was only ten dollars? They are hard to find at that price anymore!
It was in very good shape but just needed a little love....and a little paint too.
So I gave it some of both!

    This is my morning for giggles! I believe EVERY house in America has something like this in it! I know I do. I have a gigantic beautiful buffet and hutch that is old and dark...and the wood is not particularly pretty...OK, OK...I know I bought the darn thing back then, but remember kiddles, we bought what was there! The effects on wood are much more varied now than then. I would love to chalk paint it...and may one day. I am thinking red with a darker wash! I have 2 large cabinets in my bedroom, one for the TV and one for my "junk"! Love both of them. My junk cabinet is so bad...that is as in "cool" bad...but hubby cannot believe I actually paid good money for cracked beat up wood! That too caused a big giggle! He drove his truck to pick it up and shook his head all the way home! (And I sat in the passenger seat giggling at him!) This blue is beautiful!

    @Jeanette S That is too funny! But that is how we like our furniture nowadays right?? My husband knows by now to just smile and say -looks great! ;) And not act surprised when he walks in and I've painted (repainted most likely) something.
