{before & after} – and announcing a giveaway!!!


I bought this hutch/dresser thing just last week and worked on it between projects – i couldnt wait to get it painted.  Its got some good bones :)


small side table and piano 001


finished white hutch 002

I painted in Honeymilk by Valspar in a high gloss finish, chipped the paint and then finished with a high gloss coat of poly.  I love how the distressing brings out the details on the cupboard door panels.

    I have always thought this kind of cabinet would be a great cabinet for the TV. Take the inside drawers out and put the TV in. Very cute!!!

    Be still my heart-seriously! That sounds totally corny but it's exactly what I thought when I saw this piece. I wish I lived in Utah.

    Schweet.. I remember a friend when I was in grade school in the 60's that had a very similar dresser and I envied the style of it. Looks much better in white.

    Very cute – I have tried this though, and my projects haven't "chipped" as well as yours did. They looked smeared or dented. How did you do that?

    I love Rod Works. They just opened one right by me, and I have spent a small fortune already. The basket is so cute, but anything from Rod Works is darling. You can't go wrong shopping there.
