Today’s feature Friday makes me giddy inside. Today I am featuring Brooke…how fun….Brooke featuring…Brooke. Cute name huh! First of all, Brooke and I have been friends for nine years. She grew up with my hubby, and she is one of those “good at everything people.” Do you know a few of these!?! Well, she is definitely in that category.
She is part of the Crafting Chicks, and they have great stuff. This group of ladies are MEGA-TALENTED. Well, Brooke sent me a picture of her Dining Room Hutch Transformation, and I was instantly in love with it.
She even mentioned that All Things Thrifty had a small part in the technique/inspiration of this project and it made me super proud.
So check this out! I loved the design of the hutch from the get-go.
She primed her like a painting pro!
And painted her next
I know you all want to know the details of the colors she used.
She then needed a little bit of a “push” to glaze the hutch. This is the part that seems to make people nervous. I’m not sure why. Honestly, glazing is a cinch once you learn. It simply gives such a subtle, but AMAZING difference in furniture. I think it can make your furniture transformation look store-bought.
After she took the plunge, of course she glazed it like a pro too!
The glaze adds sooo much in my opinion. Here it is before the glaze went on:
And here she is after a little love from glaze:
Do you see what I mean!?! It changes your project from looking a bit homely to a piece you would find in an upscale furniture store. I love the fabric she used on the back. She also sprayed the hardware.
Viola! This hutch is something I would LOVE in my home.
Now, head over to give Brooke some love ? over at the Crafting Chicks!
By the way, I see hutches like this on Craigslist ALL THE TIME for less than $100.00. Just in case you wanted to know.
