A Handmade Hutch

I got this hutch on Tuesday from Carl the Furniture Guy. I suspect it was handmade, and very nicely done, indeed. I love all the cyma curve scrolling down the sides, and the boldly scrolled top crest as well. So handsome! It was a boring dated pine so I spiced it up a bit with a fresh springy custom mixed green called September Vineyard. I distressed the piece liberally to get lots of variation in the tones and then sealed it with dark wax. I replaced the enamel pulls with antique turned wood ones in their original surface, just to give the piece a bit more warmth.
