For my first coat, I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey. On the second coat, I decided to do a wash of Old White. I will save all the details of washing for another post. It is a really cool effect.
It was finished off with a coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax followed by a coat of Dark Wax on the detailing. I didn't really do any distressing with my sanding block because the washing technique and the wax distressed it enough for my liking.
It also had glass shelves that I painted with Old White to match the bead board backing.
The hardware had been switched out at some point but the previous owner saved the original hardware, which was such a blessing because it looks great painted. I am always trying to save a buck where I can.
So there she is in all her glory. I will be sharing more photos of the completed dining room soon. What do you think? Will you ever look at your grandma's hutch the same?
