Ok. Here it is. Got so excited to start, almost forgot the before shots! One of the glass doors had a crack in the glass, so I decided I would just leave them off altogether. This was a CL find for $40.00. Probably was 20 too much!
Here's the AFTER. I didn't get it to go here, but you'll read about that later!
Even though you don't have to sand, I still do. Don't know why. Old habits from wood finishing. I just feel like starting with a nice clean smooth surface. I removed the back thinking I was going to paint it, but after pulling it out (or rather after hubby ripping it off!) the veneer paneling began peeling. Covering it with fabric seemed easier than fixing it.
I applied ASCP in Provence to the inside of the hutch and painted it in the grooves of the door before giving it it's second coat of black. This pic above shows the detail work to the crown molding. I applied the blue sparingly with a very dry brush and made sure to work it in well.
Here are the doors after being painted. The left one has been distressed and sanded but I haven't added the Provence color yet.
Here is one of the doors all finished and waxed. I was so jazzed when I saw those colors come to life!
I did splurge on the AS clear wax and her application brush. The wax works great and you get a good workout applying it! Hate that part!
Now for the sick part. After getting this all done, I moved it inside by my back door, mudroom-like area, only to find out it was too big! WTH?? AAARRRRRGGGHHHH. So much for measuring! I really wanted to keep this!
I also found this fabric on sale at Hobby Lobby. It was applied to the back using some spray adhesive and small staples.
Just an excuse for me to find another one to do!!!!!!!
