Little Red Redo "A Hutch Story"

post by Katie

There's no big bad wolf in this story but my "little Red Redo" did end up at Grandmas Cottage in the Woods, well not so much in the woods I guess either, anyway on with my...story?

In honor of Valentines day this week I wanted to share a red hutch I recently finished.  This hutch sold almost as quickly as I brought it to the cottage.  I still wanted to post about it and thought Valentines week was the perfect time to show it off.

here it is before...
In all it's 70's style, in dark, marked up wood.  I removed the plate rail, and filled the holes that left.

I think that is something that really ages a piece.  I did like the little ceramic knobs though.   
We have this color mixed by our local Miller Paint store, we think it's the perfect red.

And so with great care and brought our little redo all dressed in her red cover over to grandmas cottage.

It went home to one of our sweetest returning customers ever, so that just makes my story all the better.

(Probably should't ask my mom "what big teeth she has" though.)

Thanks for stoppin by!

OH! Only if was mine, I am slowing changing things around here to add more red. That would have been a perfect addition. Glad it went to a sweet home!

It turned out beautiful, Katie! I admired that hutch in your last post. I am sure it is getting lots of love in its new home!

The hutch looks beautiful. I would never have thought to paint it red but it has such a warm and cheerful look to it now.
