Finding a sweet deal on a hutch is not an easy task. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for a while now, searching classifieds and consignment stores. Not that I necessarily need another one, but I just really like them and so when I see one for sale, I can't help but check out the price...which is usually a couple hundred dollars..
While we were out shopping garage sales last Saturday I saw this little beauty. Base included, it was only $25. To top it off, the people selling it actually delivered it to my front door for free. HELLO.
First things first, I had to say goodbye to the faux glass door panels. Ick.
I traced the panels and cut out identical pieces of bead board to replace them.
I painted the whole thing robin's egg blue, sanded the edges and rubbed brown paint into the beads.
The base was completely filled with spider egg sacks.
Another ick....BIG HUGE ICK, but it was still worth it.
For now it's sitting in my front room.
I might move it, but probably not very often.
This is one that I can't muscle around by myself. It's a heavy beast.
I don't mind the original hardware.
I might change the knobs if I find something that I love, but I'm definitely keeping the handles.
I like the dark contrast.
What do you think? Do you like bright colored eye-catching furniture,
or do you prefer neutral colors that will easily work with a lot of different color schemes?
I can definitely see the benefit of neutral colors.
It really makes it soooo much easier to change things up, but once in a while I just crave color!
