From Hutch to Southwestern Storage Cabinet – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends!!

How are you all? This has been another fast forward style week. Jam packed with catch up work as a result of last weeks funeral planning and services. My best friend from high school, Theresa, and her family came out to visit this weekend! It was so good to see her!! 13266084_10154208706262152_4392787113734317413_n

I adore this week’s furniture  makeover! It’s for a customer that has become a friend… Carol! She wanted a shelving unit for her house. Everywhere she looked she saw typical shelves for lots of dollars! So she decided to check with me! She went on our Upcoming Projects page and found this hutch.
24247010702_0ac28d1de9_k-2We met to talk about it and she wanted open shelving so we removed all the doors on the front. The sides of the top were glass so we also built in side panels to make it look more like a shelf than a repurposed hutch. It’s painted with Benjamin Moore’s color Tropical Teal! After we painted it (with just one coat of paint), we heavily distressed it and glazed it using Rustoleum’s Antiquing Glaze. If you want to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post.

See the side panels…

I wanted it to be clean to also make the pieces that were inside the focal point not the paint job. As I was putting everything together, I thought of using barn board for the shelves instead of painting the shelves cream. I called Carol and she gave me the ok to do that! I absolutely love that change!!
