I was so lucky to find this hutch. It has a story too, It started out as my husbands grandmothers that she had purchased in the 60's she got tired of the plain wood in the 90's and decided to paint it white, It looked good until she put the clear coat on. It had turned a yellow color. She was gonna throw it away and then my mother-in law took it and she just painted it white again. My mother-in law then grew sick of the white hutch when she had purchased a new kitchen set and put it out side. One day I was over there and asked he if I could have it and no one had faith in me to fix it back up. When I got this hutch it looked trashed it was all dirty and weathered and the wood looked like it had split in alot of places. But nope it was just the paint bubbling and cracking, Here are my pics.
Well I couldent find a before picture. So here is after I started it. I was almost done sanding.
Here is after, I love it I just need some glass for the upper doors.
Well I was looking to make some candle pillars and I went to Lowe's looking to get some square fence post. They had the post but didn't have the pretty end toppers so then I remembered seeing and ad on ksl.com about lots of wood table and chair pieces. So I went and found tunz of table legs I thought the would make great candle pillars..Hers some pics and different ideas I have done with them...
From old Table legs you can make some cut candle pillars, That's what i'm doing right now I bought a whole bunch of them and am making a boat load off of them.
For frames I am always at the DI its a consignment store here in Utah its just like a good will or Salvation Army. As long as your not looking to do wood frames I always buy these and just paint them. You can get wood frames there but there always all scratched up.
I love this kind of stuff, do you see that first one? I was at the DI and I found that same trinket that is on top and then they just glued it to that candle holder. I wounder where i can find little nick knacks like this.
