Curbside Hutch

Hello everyone, today, I’m sharing a curbside hutch. Those of you that follow me on Instagram may remember this hutch my husband found at the curbside for garbage on his daily run/walk. 

This “Do it Over” Designers day  hosted by Ann at Apple Street Cottage.  “Do it Over” Designers can be anything that we repurpose or give new life.  It can found thrifting, already in our homes or curbside.

After seeing this piece he came straight home to grab our SUV and bring it home.  He also knew I have been looking for an old hutch.   I namely wanted this to display my antique and thrifted pieces.

Ordinarily, finding pieces such as this curbside hutch is a rarity.  Why this would be at the curbside I have no idea but it worked out great for me.

Before doing anything the curbside hutch received a good cleaning and sanitizing.

In the meantime, my thought was adding white wax to let the wood show through. Luckily, I attempted this on the back corner, because it looked awful.

Because this didn’t look good at all, I decided painting was the best option.

After painting two coats of Jolie Swedish Grey, she looks beautiful.\

Lastly, I painted a applique I add in my craft room with gold Décor gold paint and glue it to the top. I adds a bit of French and glam to the finished curbside hutch.

Also, look for a post coming in a few days with this curbside hutch in all its beauty for Christmas!

If you see something on the curbside as pretty as this grab it. My husband found another piece on the same walk/run. He came back to grab that one too. However, this piece needs tons of TLC. So, look for that for that after the holiday season.

  1. Absolutely beautiful, Cindy…and I can’t believe you found it at the curb. That’s crazy!! Hoping you had a lovely Thanksgiving!

  2. Wow, what a stunning piece now Cindy! We were without a van for an entire year so sadly had to leave pieces like this at the curb. Wonderful that your husband was able to bring it home so you could breathe new life into it 🙂

  3. It always amazes me the things that are left out for the trash! Your hutch was certainly in much better shape than mine, Cindy. I can’t wait to see it decorated for Christmas…and I can’t wait to see the other piece!

  4. Oh wow CIndy what a great curbside find. Big hugs to John to capture that piece and bring it home for you. I cannot wait to see it all decked out for Christmas. Very pretty. xoxo Kris
