I’m not rolling’ in acres of Grandma’s china but dang I love a good hutch. I bought this vintage one off Craigslist last year for $130. A pretty good deal given that it’s by Finch Fine Furniture who became Thomasville Furniture in the 60’s.
The previous owner finished it with greige chalk paint and wax (I think).
Obviously the styling is half ass at this point – though I love my $15 Staffordshire dog – but the brass hardware is so gorgeous and I love the lines of the hutch. However the color needs oomph. What would Beyonce lacquer this baby in?
The living room is rough right now. We took the wallpaper down but haven’t cleaned the walls or painted anything. Ultimately the room will be neutral with off-white walls and board and batten to the ceiling, medium brown hardwood floors, and slate fireplace surround. After that, we can bust out the color, or keep things neutral. I’m undecided.
Of course I should wait until the room is done before deciding on a color for the hutch but I keep thinking about it. So throw your ideas at me. Should I make the hutch pop, or fade into the background? Should I paint the inside of the hutch something funky? Or dark? What would you guys do?
