Bold Color on an Antique Hutch


Turquoise is my favorite color, and I love how it makes this hutch a scene-stealer. The hutch was in poor repair, and the finish was "iffy" which actually helped the distressing process. If you think antiques shouldn't be painted, don't look! I promise, you won't be happy :0)
