Mid Century Hutch
We bought this from a barn sale that raises money for an orphanage in Haiti. When we bought it, I really couldn’t picture what to do with it. It sat in my storage unit for months and months and months. I asked John to prep a mid century hutch for the store and he thought I meant this one. I didn’t. When I came out to look at it, I said, that’s not the one I wanted! I can’t picture the design for that one yet. John smiled and said, “Well, it’s all prepped so time to make yourself figure out a design.” He was right, it was high time.
I had recently redone a buffet with similar lines, and I thought this piece could look great in the same finish.
We painted the box with Benjamin Moore’s color Urban Bronze, glazed it and finished with a semi-gloss clear coat.
For the drawers, we lightly sanded then stained them a light gray. I love the stripe on the drawers to make it look even more retro! Then we added new hardware.

Such an amazing transformation, right?

I’d have added something to the back like a cool retro wallpaper or stencil. That’s just me.
Love it. But where did u get the rug?
what exactly you mean by 'glazed it' after painting it & before the clear coating, with thanks
Did you take the glass out of the top?
