My parents were given an old, handmade hutch a while back, and it had just been sitting in their garage gathering dust. When they asked if I wanted it, I jumped at the opportunity! After all, I can never have too much storage for my yarn, right?
Doesn't that just look so much better!? I love how the blue just POPS in my crafting room (which is messy right now..so pardon..)
Steps: strip paint, clean up the mess (it does make a HUGE mess), sand everything with 100 grain sandpaper, paint 2 coats of a deep chocolate brown, paint 2 coats of a bright turquoise, let sit for 24 hours, rub the edges with a sandpaper block, and rub the heck out of everything else with coarse steel wool (1-2) and coarse sandpaper (but even out with a finer steel wool), and presto! new and improved hutch!
Stay crafty my friends!
