Hutch dresser given new purpose.

Hutch dresser given new purpose.

This tired old pine hutch was a trade me purchase, rescued from a life of languishing in an old shed. 

It was lovingly restored back to life with Beige* (for the main part), Aged White on the drawers and top face.Then the whole piece was waxed with Newtons Liquid Wax in light with a little bit of dark wax to enhance the embellishments.

*NB:Since this post was posted,we have very slightly changed the blend for Beige, making it more a soft taupe colour so Beige is now renamed Taupe!

Pop over to Chinagrove Creating for details on this lovely and easy DIY makeover.

Happy painting
