It went from this:
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old Violet and clear wax. I LOVE this paint! It was my first time using it, so I didn't get fancy. I just wanted to see how it works and I really, really liked it. It seems like there are a lot of possibilities with it, so I'm anxious to try it again.
I also used "beadboard" wallpaper on the inside back of the piece. This was also a first-time for me. It's very subtle, but definitely more interesting than the plain old wood backing.
So, there you have it...my simple little china hutch. Can't wait to get some cute little legs to add some height and character!
