My friend, Marie, spotted a beautiful white hutch filled with greens and aqua blues in the Pottery Barn Catalog. Yeah, Pottery Barn ain't got nothin' on her.
Checking out good ole' Craigslist, she found what she wanted and hopped in her vehicle with young Luke for extra muscles. She walked out the door of a house with this hutch for $125 less than what the listed price was!
She stripped off every extra doo-dad, the wood panels, all of it. Right down to it's beautiful, bare self. She filled in any holes and marks with wood filler and then got to work painting it. The color is Sherwin Williams Snowdy Day White, which of course she turned into chalk paint. Just add some plaster of paris. The recipe isn't really as picky as people like to make it seem! (Trust me on this one!)
And the the fun part: accessorizing!
