Paris Grey Hutch

Hi friends - hope you all had a great weekend!  It's baseball season and that always means less time for painting and projects around here.  I did find time yesterday to get this hutch (top only) painted.  I'm sure it's no surprise to you, but I failed to take a "before" picture - I'm the world's worst!














I painted it one coat with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey.  I painted the inside two coats and used Duck Egg Blue on the backing so that items stored inside will pop.  It has two adjustable shelves and I wiped those with poly in a Satin finish for added protection.  I sanded it quite a bit with a sanding block and applied a custom-color glaze. 

I love the shape and it's a great size for a small table or desk.  This photo was taken in my garage so I didn't stage it for you, but I did move the buckets of baseballs out of the way : )

Hi, Stephanie! Lovely as always. I've always like this color. I can't tell you how many time I've had to move or crop a "bucket of baseballs" or something similar out of pictures. It's just life!
