I hope you’re having a great week! Thanks so much to all of you who came out to our moving sale. It was great catching up with you. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, we bought a new house and are moving just a few minutes away from where we live now. Our store will still be on River Street in Troy. Nothing is changing there, but we will have a much better work space at our new house and we are so looking forward to it.
We are currently enjoying the last overnight house guest in this house. Having our friends Caleb and Chrisie at our house is like reminiscing about the good old days. Days with late night laughing till your face hurts. Board games and candy canes and all that good stuff. Chrisie has walked through so many seasons of life with me and has been a constant support. Filled with faith and confidence in God, love for her family and laughter. I’m more than honored to spend a few days with her, her hubby and their 5 kiddos… 7 and under.
As for this week, I want to share a makeover we recently did as a custom order. Linda inherited much of her father’s furniture. She wanted to love them again while still keeping memories of her father so she asked us to breath new life into them. One of my favorite parts about my job is when I get to transform something that someone adores and help them keep a furniture piece with history in their home.
Here’s the hutch before… sorry it’s not a great picture!
We painted it using Benjamin Moore’s color Urban Bronze. It’s a new color that I’ve been wanting to try for a long time. If you’d like to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post. We also added fabric to the back. Fabric can make such a difference on a hutch transformation. The unique part about this makeover was that I kept the shelves the original wood. I thought it tied in with the colors in the fabric well. What do you think?
Here are the after’s for you.
