Shabby Chic China Hutch

Trial & Error!
Sometimes i envision a certain look, but once i try it, realize not the best idea.

So i originally painted this Darling Hutch a blue/grey color, but it was too dark for what i was really aiming for.

Love the pieces that can come totally apart

I really wanted  a two toned piece. I do a lot of shades of white, and black for the shoppe, SO this one I wanted to be different.
Using a few differ. Samples of (oops)paint mixing them to get this blue shade.
I painted the inside this pretty blue.

I used a rustic gold and hand painted the edge of the bottom portion.
Then added Vintage Music Sheets for the backing, one thing about having a shoppe is I can try differ styles,colors, techniques allows for such Creativity.
Once the light is lit up inside and glass shelves are put back in, This Vintage China Hutch will be such a Sweet Piece.
