Lucketts 2017 is definitely “the year of the hutch”. I have more hutches and large pieces in general than I have in previous years, but I am trying to round that out with smaller pieces that will be easier on-the-spot purchases.
This is one of those small pieces that I picked up a few weeks ago…
It really wasn’t bad as it was. It could’ve used a coat of Hemp Oil to freshen it up, but I’ve learned that wood pieces don’t sell all that well for me, so I painted it out in Grain Sack from the MMSMP line…a grayish white that would work nicely with the marble top. The painting was a tag-team effort between Debbie and I. Debbie, by the way, has been amazing. She is filling in, since Kriste is on maternity leave, and I don’t know what I would do without her!
She hasn’t done much painting before, but she is a natural and a very tidy painter.
I added some glass knobs from Hobby Lobby that tie in perfectly with the warm veins in the marble. The coolest feature of this piece, though, is the pull-out towel bar…
I didn’t even notice it until I carried it into the studio. What a clever little thing, isn’t it?
And it pushes back in when it’s not in use…
I love how the finish on this one turned out. It just the right amount of chipping.
It’s coming to Lucketts along with everything else!
My mom and I went shopping for smalls today and among the smalls I bought, I bought a hutch.
I just can’t help myself.
