I have also been busy on a couple of custom orders so I'll try to reveal those if I can very soon. But today I do have a lovely hutch to show you. No "before" pic, but this is nothing most of you haven't seen before.
A nice 1960's era Maple hutch in a nice medium brown finish. Remember? Well, you're going to have to cause I completely forgot to take a before shot. Let me say, it was in pristine condition, which is a joy to work on after several pieces in rather shakey shape!
I used this hutch to try out the Benjamin Moore Aura paint I know Cassie at Primitive & Proper uses. It is wonderful, wonderful paint, though there was a re-learning curve after so many months of Chalk Paint use! The color on the outside is Wedgewood Gray, I dearly love this color. A little bit blue, a little bit gray, and all good!
Look at the pretty, delicate knobs I found to use on the top. Do you detect the interior color? Hmmm.
Yes, this is BM's "Harvest Moon" color. It doesn't seem to read quite this bright to me in person, or maybe it's just the bright sun kicking it up a notch! But I love the colors together. I love the little bit of excitement and fun it adds to this hutch. I think these two colors play nicely together. What do you think?
The knobs on the bottom of the hutch make my heart go pitter pat. Wanna see them up close?
Gorgeous little baby isn't it?! These were a great find from Hobby Lobby. Man I love that they carry so many fun hardware pieces these days.
So here is another shot of the pretty little 2 piece hutch. And I'm off to work on something new! I really need to work on some blogging skills...you know like posting once in a while. So when I'm in the middle of lots of little "fires" I might just have to post something other than furniture! Any good ideas on what I should chat about? As long as I'm not just sitting here talking to myself!
Have a great rest of the week!
