Weekend Warrior Project #1 – Hutch

BEFORE: Got this lovely hutch at my favorite antique store here in Phoenix for $60.



I couldn’t be helper with the way this turned out! Here is how I did it:

  • I primed the entire hutch with Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover 2x Coverage in white. If you haven’t been using this paint to refinish things then I highly suggest you start using it. It’s a spray can, paint and primer in one so it cuts your project time in half!
  • The gray color is Benjamin Moore’s Stone 2112-40. I find that the small sponge rollers work best in the paint application for these type of projects.
  • Added a new crystal knob from Joan’s for $2.50 on sale.
  • Total cost of the project: $35

Drinks before noon, yes please.

It only took me 4 years to get on the Mad Men band wagon and now I can’t get enough. It seems the decor of the 60’s is starting to infect my current decorating style. Maybe it is the economy and people have to downsize on space, but I have been noticing the bar carts having a big comeback. The best part is they work into any home style: vintage, modern, country, outdoor, etc.

With a bar like this is seems completely appropriate to have a drink at any time of the day, especially if it’s with Don Drapper.
