Before I left, I finished another french hutch! This client wanted the french hutch I did a few months ago but it had sold. So the day I got the email that she wanted to order one, was the day I just happened to find one and was on my way home with it! Funny how these things happen!
We spoke on the phone and she said she wanted the same colors as my last one. This was going to be used for her toddler to store toys. She wanted chicken wire where the glass was. For easy access I left the door off and painted the shelves and back.
I love the French pulls so I left them on the drawers and painted them. I love doing custom furniture. It is great when the client can choose exactly what they want.
The details are painted in old white and the hutch is painted in Paris Grey.
This became difficult to do when I took the glass out of the sides. I hate to break it. Then when I put the chicken wire in I realized the top arch wasn't like the others I have done. I had to put the wire in the slotted opening to make it sit right. I was a major pain!!
Chicken wire hurts like heck! I always say I give blood when I do one of these! Oh but the results are worth it!
The sun was shining in and casted a yellow hue to the pics...but I love the warmth of it.
Now that I am home from vacation, I will call her to pick it up! I already sent her pics and she loves it!
I have to admit....I am getting used to painting hutches and even though they are a lot of work....
I think they are worth it! It makes such a difference!
Now I really have to get back to working......but alas......I still yearn for the beach!
This was my view in Seagrove FL. on the Gulf! Look how calm that water is! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
