I can just smell the ocean and all its therapeutic powers! AHHHHH!
The new piece has a primitive vibe to it. Very dark wood! Although some people like that, I felt in order for it to sell I would have to recreate it to be more bright and fresh.
There are two pieces. The hutch or shelf that hangs on the wall and the table. It would look great in an entry. It is just the right size. There are so many possibilities for this!
There are scalloped detailing around the outline of the furniture. The pulls are a shiny black.
I started asking myself why I bought this thing! I had never seen anything like it so I thought it would be something different to work with. The wood color just brought me down! It stayed around here for way to long! I painted it white and hated it! Then I just let it sit till I got "that feeling" to revamp it!
I started with the pulls....I got rid of the old ones! You know me! This time I made my own with jute. I braided the jute and made handles for the top small drawer. The bottom on I used jute pulls from Hobby Lobby.
I painted blue stripes where it was obvious for them to be and sanded a lot of it off.
I glued a starfish to the top hutch with E6000. Then I added some beachy items to the shelves.
Are you starting to get the feel of it?
This is the bottom
Check out the difference! I don't usually like putting two pulls together, but I think it works ok here.
This is the top
Again just look at the before! See the edges showing up now. Would you have thought "beach" looking at the before pictures? I know I am weird! I just get these feelings.....
The top part should be hanging on the wall but since it is going to the store to sell, I didn't want to put holes in my walls. You get the picture, right?
