Small Hutch Makeover

Well it feels good to be able to say I've completed another makeover project.  I've been in a bit of a slump when it comes to getting my furniture redos done. If you missed my post about this, you might want to check it out here.  Needless to say I was a bit overwhelmed with furniture literally to the ceiling!
So here's a quick before and after for you to start things off.

I definitely had some mishaps along the way.  I almost cried when the top of the paint can popped off as I was shaking it upside down as instructed.  I did manage to flip it up pretty quickly.  So, I'm thankful for that.

Yes.  It's Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!

I painted straight from my arm. :)

I was attempting to paint the back of the hutch in Duck Egg Blue.  I soon ran out of patience with the cutting in part of that process.  Thus, I dry brushed over it to hide my inadequacies.  Here was my first attempt.

The sides are Old White and the back was going to be Duck Egg Blue.

I also had a battle with the glass doors not closing properly.  I finally went and bought new latches and took care of that problem.

Now, back to the hutch.  I hope you stayed with me to see some more after pictures!  Here they are......

OK.  One more time. Before.....

And after......

Thanks so much for stopping by!
