Dining Room Hutch, part 1

Here is part one of a two part project post.
Why two posts?
Because this piece of furniture is massive (and heavy).
It doesn't appear that large in photos, but trust me, it is.

A few weeks ago I posted about a client who recently
purchased a new lake home.  She came to me requesting
we brighten up some of her existing furniture.

Here is another piece that she dropped off:

She requested it be painted in Annie Sloan's Old White with
light distressing.

Here is how the bottom portion turned out.

I love the original hardware. 
The entire piece looks fantastic. It's a completely different look.

We're nearly finished with the hutch portion of this project. 
I'll post photos in a day or so.
If you know me, you know I'll do whatever it takes to get a
great furniture shot.  Lifting, moving - bring it on.
So . . .  I'm really bummed that
the hutch is too heavy for us to lift onto this cabinet.
On the bright side, two part furniture posts can be fun.
Plus - I'm pregnant - so the lifting ends here.  Until, October.
To be continued! 


  1. Great job! It is beautiful and the original hardware is very pretty.

  2. Love the bottom half! I can only imagine how amazing it is going to look when all together! That is one gorgeous piece! And, I'm so glad to hear your pregnant-self isn't trying to move this bad boy! ;P
