I know, I know, two posts in one day?? lol I just finished up this makeover and put it on our Furniture For Sale page. If you’re interested in buying it please use our Contact Us form or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here it is before! It’s really tall and I liked that it had glass shelves and was lighted. What I didn’t like?? It was on a 3rd floor apartment with no elevator! Now that’s a fun family night out. Insert sarcastic tone there. ;) Thankfully the man we bought it from was very nice and helped John lug it down all three flights.
We removed the metal sections on either side of the glass sections on the hutch, filled the holes from the old handles, and sanded all surfaces with 180 grit paper to create a “tooth” for the primer. We prepped it with Glidden’s grey bonding primer. Love this stuff!
Then the we painted it with Benjamin Moore’s Silver fox which is a light grey. I also removed the back and added a white/cream wood plank backer board to give it more texture and dimension. I also distressed the edges and glazed it with Valspar’s antiquing glaze.
The hardware is from Hobby Lobby and I sprayed it all to match using Rustoleum’s Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint.
Here’s the after for you. Would you like it in your dining room?? Remember, it’s for sale! :)
