Country Hutch in Black and White

This might be my new favorite!

A good friend's sister brought this buffet and hutch to me. It was her grandmothers, and although in great condition (solid maple!), she wanted it updated. She had a vision of black and distressed/glazed white. I thought it would look nice...but now that it's completed, I love it!!

Here's how it started:

And here it is tonight. The pictures are ok, but the sun makes the back of the hutch look a little orangish.

Hope you love it, Maura!!

Way cute! I have just the top of a hutch with no bottom that I've had for over a year. Still trying to figure out what to do with it lol. I would love for you to share your talents at my VIP party today.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

I love it. My hubby hates painted wood so all my furniture is in the old boring wood color (can you call that a color?) I wish I could paint because I would redo all my living room furniture
