French Country Toile Hutch!
I purchased this chocolate looking beast of a hutch about a year ago. It sat in my garage as I tried to figure out how to beautify it.
It's a very BIG piece so I knew it needed a paint color to soften it up & bring out the details.
The brown glossy finish was HORRIBLE!
I love Annie Sloan's color 'French Linen' but LOVE General Finishes milk paint even more. So I mixed their Millstone, Driftwood & Linen to get this gorgeous color.
Shadowed & highlighted with GF's Driftwood, Millstone, Linen,Antique White & Snow White. Recycled some hardware I had laying around and did the same thing to them to match.
I used 3M self adhesive spray to apply the French toile fabric to the back board.
It's no longer a beast...
The details just pop now!
Look at those sexy legs!
Perfect marriage of paint & fabric.
Love this fabric!
Who wouldn't want to display their beauties in this?!
