Dish Rack Furniture Hutch6:00:00 AM
I pulled over for a very interesting find recently...
I wasn't exactly sure what it was because it was getting dark
but I pulled over and threw it in the trunk.
When I got home I discovered that it was a cabinet piece that was probably built to hold dishes in a kitchen. It had a bead board backing and wooden spindles.
It is a very rustic piece, made of pine with very rough cuts,
no fine carpentry here but I liked it.
The first thing I thought was that it needed to be a little taller.
I built an apron around the base then added legs.
All it needed was a coat of paint to unify the whole piece.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg.
I painted the word MARKET on the front apron.
I printed the word on the computer, rubbed pencil on the back, then traced over the letters onto the wood.
I hand painted MARKET with white paint
and distressed it with sandpaper.
The bottom well of this piece is the perfect place
for a platter or a large bowl.
The top spindles hold plates beautifully.
On the front I hung an old rusty hook to hold a tea towel.
That "interesting find" from the side of the road turned into the perfect little hutch to hold plates, platters,
and large bowls.
I put it on Craig's List and it now has a new home
with someone that loved it!
