On the way down to the delivery I zipped into the goodwill to see if they hand any furniture that merit refinishing. I spotted this handsome antique Art Deco walnut hutch straight away and snapped it right up. Or well, paid for it. I had to actually deliver the nearly identical hutch down to the client before I had room in my truck for the new one. It's been raining hutches lately.
I painted this piece in a bright custom mixed blue with a custom mixed cream interior. I liked the original brass drawer pulls but felt they were just a hair diminutive for the gutsy oversized drawer, so I replaced them with second period oval Federal brasses colored in white. I distressed the case lightly and sealed with dark wax.
