This is the not-so-beautiful before. I found this one sitting out in the rain, all lonely, just like my farm table .
That's dirty white paint peeling off a bright yellow underneath. I sanded off the white, but the yellow didn't budge. While I was sanding, I discovered the back of the hutch had painted over wallpaper. Ugh!
As I removed the wallpaper, I discovered a blue painted underneath.
That makes three colors. For some reason, I got the feeling this piece should be painted with a bright color. I could not decide between turquoise and green. While shopping over the weekend, I saw a cabinet in Anthropologie that was painted with the green and turquoise together, and I knew that it would be perfect.
While I was sanding and distressing, there came that yellow again. It was actually a great accent. I'm so glad I picked colors that looked good with yellow. My white primer also made an appearance, making this a very colorful hutch.
I hope someone falls in love with it at the antique mall.
