Hello, and Welcome to Anne’s Attic – design! It has been a little lonely lately with not tending the grands as much as I am use to, but it has given me the chance to do some projects that I have wanted to do without little hands in the mix.
One of the projects that I have been excited about it redoing my hutch. The hutch is the only new piece of furniture that I have my little nest. Since it isn’t totally made of wood I have been hesitant to do my little shabby number on it. One thing that I have done is redo the backing on the hutch. I’ve only repainted it three times now, I ‘m just trying to get it right so it will fit in with the my old things that I am doing right now.
This is what it looked like before I started to change it a little bit.
Here it is empty and ready for the change.
This is the color that I have chosen to go on the back, a great French blue chalk paint from Vintage Market.
This lovely lace backing will go up after the paint. This is the first time that I have used this product and I am thrilled with it. It is a lovely fabric type paper, very sturdy.
I used two coats of the Vintage Market Chalk paint and let it dry really good.
Then I cut the lace fabric to fit each section. I used those little glue dots to hang the lace. I didn’t want it to be permanent because I like to change things around to often. I love the way that the French blue paint looks under it.
I wanted a white lace edging on the shelves, but with the hutch being so white I was afraid that white lace wouldn’t show up. So I cut some brown craft paper and laid some of the lace over the top of it. Then made a scallop on the edges. It turned out perfect and really adds a lot of charm to the hutch.
The trim matches nice with the wood finish. Now for the fun part! Decorating it.
Here it is all finished. Can you believe that I left the ties on the drawers and cupboards? I do this because Tiny is getting into everything! Crazy me! Remember the hat box and the tote that I refinished? Well, now they have a perfect place to sit and look pretty. Here are some pictures of the vignettes that I have put together on the hutch.
I was able to use some of my new cream-wear finds in the hutch. My collection is getting bigger. I wanted to give the hutch a different look and I think that I achieved it.
