Before & After - Grandma's Hutch to Favorite Hutch!

I wanted a hutch for a large wall in my kitchen but I didn't want to spend a fortune. I found this hutch on Craigslist and thought it had potential. While the etched glass was nice on its own, it didn't fit into the vision I had for this piece. So I removed the glass, painted, distressed it, waxed it, and added a few special touches...
The "Before"
And the "After"
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite and dark wax. I used Annie Sloan Duck Egg and clear wax for the inside of the cabinets. There was some sweat and blood involved with the chicken wire, but I prevailed! I'm really happy with how it turned out and it has become one of my favorite pieces.

    I love the chicken wire! It's definitely "in" now in an Industrial Farmhouse decor! Did u use glass as well or just the wire?
