A Vintage Copper Hutch Potting Bench5:30:00 AM
A vintage hutch with a copper insert gets a Homeroad makeover today
and becomes a beautiful potting bench!
Here is where it all began... a Facebook ad for an old hutch.
Dark green enamel paint... not my favorite but this piece sure had potential!
What I didn't know until I went to pick up the piece was that it had this awesome copper insert.
The insert is removable so I removed it and gave it a good cleaning with Bar Keepers Friend.
I painted the hutch in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Country Grey then sealed it with Miss Mustard Seed Tough Coat Sealer.
This piece is not meant to be an outdoor potting bench though a covered area or a potting shed would be the perfect spot.
I replaced the copper insert and realized that the only thing missing that would make this piece super awesome were some copper knobs.
The knobs I loved for this project are from D. Lawless Hardware, they always have just what I need. The selection of knobs and handles is amazing so I easily found what I needed for this piece.
Another couple of other needed pieces of hardware for this project were magnetic closures to keep the bottom doors from swinging open. The original clips were missing.
D. Lawless Hardware had a good selection of just what I needed for this too!
This hutch now potting bench came out prettier than I had imagined. The copper insert and the beautiful copper knobs are the perfect accent to the greyish-green Chalk Paint® color.
I love making potting benches and you can check out some of my other pieces below.
