By adding new decor, while using old furniture as the foundation, it can completely change the space. And the best part is you can save a BUNDLE!!!
In my front room, I have owned this hutch for MANY years. It originally had a top section, but after a few years of living with it as a “collect all” (ugh), I thought it would be a good idea to take off the top and see what I could do with the bottom section. I played around with the bottom hutch for a few months and then decided to take the leap and paint it white.
I added some glaze, some burn throughs, pin holes, and NEW hardware — I was in LOVE!
In the end, I just weigh the Pros and Cons and ultimately, I just hire it out. Less mess and headache for me:)
And if you hire the right talent, it will look AMAZING and the finish will last for YEARS!!!
Oh and by having someone else do it, I won’t have to look at all my mistakes!!! ugh… that is the WORST part about being so darn picky (yikes) maybe a better word is a perfectionist.
Wait… that doesn’t sound any better either. Sigh… I guess here’s me accepting my flaws!
LOL…yep, I’m human 🙂
