Remaking a Hutch for a Craft Room

We had this old hutch sitting in our basement.  Once upon a time it belonged to my grandparents and then my parents.  It sat in our basement being used as storage.  It looked dated and didn't suit our taste, but I felt guilt at even the thought of painting it.  That changed after I came across a beautiful post at House of Joyful Noise. Read it...but get tissues first.  Trust me. 

We were moving into a larger home where I would have my own craft room.  With a little paint, I knew this hutch would look so pretty in there.

I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White.  I LOVE this chalk paint because you don't need to sand or prime the surface first. I finished it off with a coat of Annie Sloan soft wax.  This step makes a huge difference in the feel of the piece when your done. 

I replaced the handles on the top drawers with ones I had on hand.  The three down the middle are the originals painted in metallic silver.

I adore the way it turned out!  I'm so glad I let the fear go and painted it :) It now sits in my craft room.  

The drawers and bottom cabinet are filled with supplies.

On the shelves sit some of my favorite pictures and some pretty crafting inspiration.

The "sweet" banner below is from one of my favorite Etsy shops Raising Up Rubies

The top shelf is home to our tooth fairy :)  The box she is guarding is where I keep the treasures the tooth fairy delivers. You can check out this post to see what we do for the tooth fairy.

Thanks for visiting
