Ballard Design Style Hutch

While I thought I would avoid sharing how or what I have transformed, as it slightly could take away from my shoppe.

BUT I so Love to share what I am working on, and how I do it, so Ill just have to risk it.

I was searching high-low for a china hutch with some unique character and style, it took me several weeks to come across this gem.
Not totally wanting the gold etching on the glass, I scraped each line/cross line off.

No Matter the piece I work on, I like to make it differ from the original state I find it in, so this Hutch, I wanted a differ. back on it, so I took off the back.

Always wanting to use what I have already, I found this piece of Wainscot/Bead Board, that was left from building something else, and as you can see, it had become a drop cloth for painting on.
So I re-painted it a soft white.

Added the new piece with molding to the back of the newly re-painted China Hutch, giving it a Nice Clean Lined Style, similar to what I love at Ballard Designs or Pottery Barn..

For the Holidays I added a boxwood wreath and silver bow..
At the point of picture taken, the inside was not totally decorated with the shiny silver yet..
But still, just Love It..
