This might be my absolute favorite makeover! I’m not always a huge fan of overly distressed pieces but that look seemed to fit this hutch perfectly.
Once a month a few bloggers and myself have a Themed Furniture Makeover Day. We have a theme for each month and share our creations with you guys. This month the theme was rustic. I was stumped…until this cabinet came into my life.
The glass was missing and it didn’t have shelves but those were easy fixes.
I used boxwood milk paint by Miss Mustard Seed and used a clear wax on the outside. The wax deepened the color and made it the perfect shade of green.
The inside of the cabinet was painted in Lazy Linen by Country Chic Paint.
I heavily distressed inside and out to really get the rustic look! I was hoping for the milk paint to chip and flake naturally but that didn’t happen so I had use my sander.
To resolve the missing glass problem I used 1 inch chicken wire to replace the glass. I sprayed it with a gold metallic spray paint to get rid of the galvanized look.
My furniture friend Amanda – from Ferpie & Fray – is known for leaving bare legs on her pieces and I was inspired to try it. Ferpie & Fray is one of my all-time favorite blogs. I love her furniture and her style. She has found her niche and does it well!
Here is the before with one more look of the after.
Make sure to take a look at all of the great rustic themed makeovers! They are all pretty awesome!
