French Farmhouse Hutch

I am writing this post as I watch the Oscars..... Playing Oscar bingo and tabulating my votes for the winners.

Can someone say multi-tasker?

This piece of furniture ranks up there as one of my favorites. It was a lot of work but one thing about furniture painting and repurposing, is the creation and showing more that just painting.

I feel this piece represents that the best.


I am so happy with every details from the chicken wire to the fabric to the multi-layered paint.

I created a two-tone color of Old white and Paris with a loose brushstroke and blending the two slightly.



There is just enough distressing to make it look natural.

This piece had some great details too from the molding to the curvy legs.


I used white paint to highlight some areas and dry brushed the rest.



I changed all the knobs because the originals were just awful! I removed the glass added chicken wire to give it a farmhouse feel.


I added French script fabric to the back and created the french feel to finish the piece.

And I have to say I am in love......


Too bad she is for sale.....



Until then I will enjoy looking at her!
