My First Hutch!

My First Hutch!

I am happy to introduce my new hutch to you!   
 My mom and I were out flea market shopping when she spotted this beautiful thing.  This hutch was a bit more than I usually spend on a piece of furniture, thank heavens my mom was with me to talk me into it, I would be so mad at myself if I had made it home without this beauty. 

I have always wanted a hutch with glass shelves and a light.  I drool over them on Pinterest and now I have my own!
The details on this hutch are beautiful and in the end won me over.  I knew with a new paint job and some glazing these details would be the focal point of a beautiful piece. 

I replaced the back panel with bead board and I painted it with Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg Chalk Paint, which made the perfect backdrop for my white dishes.  

I couldn’t be more happy with how this hutch turned out.

    Oh Wow, you did a stunning job on this. It is so beautiful, and loved that you used the duck egg blue
    for the background, my fav color…………it just sets those white dishes off so beautifully.
    What a great find, but what a great job you did on it.
    What a lovely piece of furniture……and yea for your MOM helping me make that great decision.

    Enjoy it hon,
    Blessings, Nellie

    Hi Brooke, I found you over at Anything Blue Friday. Congrats on your feature, you so deserved it! I'm in LOVE with your new hutch! The beadboard on the back painted duck egg blue adds just the right amount of color, and I love the understated cream color with the light glazing on the top to make the details pop. It's just beautiful. Well done!

    This is so beautiful! I love that shade. Did you add white to the Duck Egg?
