Starsky and Hutch

It was bad. The hutch, I mean. Craigslist said, $40: hutch from the 1940's. Solid wood. Alright. Can do. But the hutch had been sitting on the front porch of an ol gal's house for i don't know how long. Black widow webs dusted along the bottom of the wood. Warped veneer was rising up in all sorts of strange places, and the black. The black. i had no choice but to go shabby on this one.


The handles were very strange. i didn't like them.

I stole this idea from Cassie's blog, which she stole from somewhere-who's blog. Here's her take on the idea for a dresser. Alright, I can't find it. The idea was a transition from light to dark color on the drawers of her dresser. I tried it on this hutch for a cheery, quirky, clean effect, and i like it. can't wait to stash all my linens in it!

 
 





I'm not very good at cleaning. I know! I should've cleaned those windows before I shot this thing. :) But I'm liking the farmy mid-century vibe.
