The End of the Peacock
Another little piece of furniture that recently underwent a makeover…my china hutch.
This piece has quite a history. It was originally my husband’s grandmother’s piece. And true to its era, it had a dark veneer finish. Then one day on a whim, I painted it the dreaded black. (Hey, it was about ten years ago.) And after remodeling my former dining room, it got a good dose of peacock-blue paint. And I really loved the peacock-blue. I really did. It was mysterious and such a fun color. But then we moved. And I knew that it just needed a change.
I know you know where this is heading…it got painted white. And I mean WHITE.
And I love it!
Here is a before shot. I can’t seem to find a better picture, sorry!
And here is the after-
I’d say this baby took me about three coats of paint. Covering dark paint can be tricky.
Every time I look at it now I feel like I’m on a vacation to the beach. And that makes me happy…
