We bought this hutch about fifteen years ago and I love it!
I found the small 12-drawer chest (next to the wooden bowl) at an antique mall a few years later. The wood finishes are a perfect match!
I love the warm reddish wood tones a lot. BUT....for the past few months I've been thinking about making a change. I've been looking at a lot of black furniture pieces. Some new and some old things that have been given a new black look. But for me ~ well it's hard to imagine taking a paint brush to a piece of furniture this big.
What if I mess it up? What if I don't like it?
I really need visuals before attempting something like painting this...
Oh my goodness ~ did I ever get a visual!! I was visiting Rhoda at Southern Hospitality the other day and read about an antique mall that she visited. She shared a bunch of photos of all the goodies she saw there. The photo up above was one of those goodies! It's just like mine ~ almost. Mine has 4 doors & drawers and mine doesn't have the nice molding around the top edge, but close enough...don't you think? I think my hutch would look wonderful painted black!
I'm not sure what Bill will think ~ but at least I have a visual!!
Thanks for sharing Rhoda!!
