All real wood and a sweet deal at just 20 bucks. Texted the lady, paypal'd the 20 and my friend picked it up. It's now a part of the front room furniture family! Yay!
Now, my painting friends - What to do? As you know, I am going for the beach cottage feel (should make us feel great in the winter months - lol)
|The hutch will stand where the trunk is now.|
and I know I want to leave the top and the bottom edge as is.
I want to paint the middle. The hutch that I bought off Craigslist last year is white and hope that some day the carpenter will put a wood top between the upper and lower parts (or I'll save the money and someday give it a shot myself)
|More about the hutch here|
I guess I should match it to the color of the hutch, since they are in the same room. But think I would go for the chalk paint version, maybe a bit of stressing to bring out the weave pattern in the door.. What do you think?
Also, is this something that I should save for a Summer project? or could I do this, lets say in December or January (I'll be painting in our unheated shop or our cool slightly heated basement)?
Oh and btw, sorry for the absence, my daughter is here for an extended visit and we are always on the go.
Looking forward to your suggestions!
Aloha a Hui Hou!
Its So Very Cheri
