Revamping vintage finds


All this make-over took was a bit of milk paint in a vibrant color, some dark wax, and some time...it's one of our favorites

    I bought an old house. I kept seeing a "hutch" in the army green kitchen cabinets that lived on one side of the room. I removed some cabinet doors, got a bit happy with a jig saw, created some side panels from the reclaimed doors, added some doo dads, blobbed some brown paint on several spots, added crackle, repainted it GREEN . . . and then antiqued it. My friends all thought I was crazy, but voila . . MASSIVE hutch! The kind that cost about $8k. Now, I'm flipping the house and the first question I get asked is . . . "Soooo, does the antique sideboard convey with the house?" I too love to mix painted with regular antique wood pieces. It's all about style. IF you have an eye you can combine them for a jaw dropping effect . . . if you can't, then keep with the matchy-matchy look. It just may suit you best afterall. Well done on your piece it's an AWESOME JOB!
