Distressed and Painted Hutch
Furniture from my childhood that still functioned just fine, just a tad dated looking. I had a wonderful quilt that became the inspiration for this "make-over".
|The original unpainted chest portion of the hutch.|
started by masking off the drawer fronts (the flat areas only).|
These will be painted later.
A wash of soft green was applied over the existing brown stained wood.
I purposely let some of the brown show through,
for that distressed "shabby chic" look.
|The drawer fronts were "stenciled" with the same geometric shapes AND colors in the inspiration quilt.|
Simply using painters tape to mask off portions and some exposed for painting,
leaving parts of the original finish to create the design.
|The inspiration quilt, a mix of cottons and velvets in a simple geometric pattern.|
I love the way this turned out.
Now to decide what to do with the matching dresser!
