FYI: This hutch was your typical hokey-oak country cabinetry type piece, not a glowing portal to an otherworldly dimension, as the poor-quality photograph may suggest. Bummer.
So Better After reader Camille stuck to its country roots with a smokey blue paint job and a distressed finish, along with the naturally stained top and uh … other top. The higher top. The crown moulding part on top. You know what I mean. Anyway.
I also love how she put plate rails in place of the teensy railings that served no practical purpose I can think of other than protecting teacups during a very slight earthquake. Great job Camille!
