Now on to the hutch. Some of you may not know that this was Mr. Savvy's mom's hutch. She died from cancer when he was fifteen. So of course he has hung on to this piece.
This is the finished look except I may add some more dark wax to the left door. Always find things wrong when I look at pictures.
Now I will give you the steps of what I did and more finished shots.
You can see how the Aubusson has been added to these doors.
After all the paint was dry I started sanding it.
You can see the many layers of colors here. This poor hutch has been painted several times. Of course I love the layers that show through with sanding.
Now, the rest of the pictures are the finished piece. I used clear wax all over the whole thing and then added dark wax in places.
I also added some Provence chalk paint in places on the doors.
Oh, and yes I worked on this in the great room. I had a drop cloth down while working.
Here you can see the Chateau Gray and Old Ochre that were the colors it was before this time.
I will show it too you in the bathroom soon.
