The Antique French Hutch Reveal

3.13.2017

It's very old, has imperfections, beautiful details, tarnished and rusty parts, and it's a bit stinky, but we love it! Yep, the mister loves it, too. 
Hello, pretty antique French hutch.
 Welcome to your new home.


I love the dark brown against the white walls.



Beautiful oak with mostly original parts. I say mostly because a couple of the locks had been changed and now we have actually replaced a couple more of the locks after I took these photos.

I love these unique handles.

My ironstone that was in the old hutch fit nicely in this one.





I changed what I had on the table. The taller pot was blocking the view to the hutch so for now I'm using the lower dough bowl filled with  moss balls, preserved boxwood and lavender.

I took the chairs away that sat on each side of the old hutch. It was just to crowded.

I had painted some gray paint over the gold parts of these sconces when I first got them a couple of years ago, but decided to glam them back up with some Rub'n Buff since the new hutch is a solid dark wood.

I also like the look with the doors shut.

.But I prefer them open to enjoy my ironstone collection.


And NO, I want be painting it! 😊

Have an awesome week!

  3. It's a beauty!!!...and I had to chuckle when you mentioned how wonderful the dark wood looks against the wall as that is what my hubby says when he is supporting dark wood furniture...and it is true, as the hutch is fabulous!....Love the ironstone in the hutch and also love the doors open too...looks great both ways. So happy that you are so pleased with your new hutch and the new chairs too!....Certainly a beautiful new look to the dining room. Enjoy your treasure for many years to come!

  27. I love rich deep toned wood furniture. This is a keeper. Will you apply Liquid Gold or anything else when dusting this peace?

  28. It is beautiful and looks like it is from the same company as my oak hutch...Mine is from a company in The Netherlands that reproduces the look of authentic antiques using very thick oak and antique look hardware. Mine was purchased from a furniture store in Colorado - and it is always commented on as "antique"!

  33. The antique French hutch is absolutely gorgeous Kim! There is noting like the real deal from France.

    Love how the darker wood of the hutch contrasts with your lighter walls and white Ironstone. So happy this piece found a new home with the right owner who has no intention of painting it. Your new chairs are also very lovely.
