Furniture Refresh-{Grey Hutch}

Hello Sunshine! It's that time again. Do you know what that time is? Ummm, are you saying you don't count the weeks to each furniture refresh?! Wow.
Well, here we are again, but now we have a few new members, so don''t forget to see their furniture flips at the end of this post as well. They are going to be worth the extra clicks. 😉

This lovely hutch was a thrift store find for $100, but as it turns out it was my lucky day, because it had the color sticker that was 1/2 price that day. Woo-hoo! Love a great deal. So this was supposed to be the height that filled in my shop space, but I pulled out of the space before I could refinish her and she became a long time obstacle in my garage. Seasoned like all the rest of my poor furniture pieces before they finally find new life. 


Recently a friend asked if I could set up my leftover items in her studio to decorate and sell. So I thought it would be nice to finish this piece and haul it out of my garage as well.
And...That's how I'm able to bring this delightful flip to you today!
You always feel lucky when you visit me, don't you? 

First I sanded, then primed with an oil base primer. Afterwards I applied 2 coats of General Finishes Grey Seagull with a bit of their snow white mixed in to make it a bit lighter.

Because of the difficulty of removing the hardware, I decided to paint and prime it too. I didn't like the plain painted look, so I sanded them a bit to show the shine of the original finish a little. I like the way it's set off by the lead work in the doors.

                                                At first I decorated with all ceramic dishes,
 but I didn't like it. I switched out some of the white and added my pie plate collection instead. I really like the way the metals play off one another.

I like the look of that much better!
 If I'm real honest with myself, I still feel like the lower half could use something more, I just can't decide what yet.
Any suggestions? 
Thank you for visiting today! Now hop on over to my friends and enjoy their amazing flips as well!
Toodles,
