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 be 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 to add 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 an applique I add in my craft room with gold Décor gold paint and glue it to the top. It 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 after the holiday season.
