Grain sack stripe inspired hutch

I picked up a hutch at the decordeals sale a while ago. I’ve had this vision of painting stripes onto the back of a hutch for a while and found the perfect one to try it out on there. If you follow me on instagram, you have already seen the before and after.

If not, you really should. I’ve been super lazy about blogging since my husband left and post fun stuff there now.
I bought the baskets from a the Big Heap up in Cave Creek. They fit inside these holes perfectly. It was almost one of those gates opening, angels singing moments. 

The color is called Gray Tabby and I sealed it with minwax’s provincial stain. I measured and taped off the stripes onto the back with blue painters tape. Then after some heavy distressing, I applied a thick coat of stain. I’m in love.

And my all my white dishes look phenomenal on it. In fact, it inspired me to do a bit of painting in my rental before we list it again. B-E-A utiful. I really love this dark gray color.

Pardon my slightly askew photos and lighting. My computer has NO photo editing software on it. In fact, I can barely write an e-mail right now before wanting to shoot a hole right through the screen with my 9mm. I’m not so patiently waiting for the hubby to return with my trusty laptop he took to Panama. He can have this windows 8 hunk of junk.

Over and out.
