Old ugly hutch makeover

Check out this beaut....  ha....
I actually passed on it a few times.  I mean...it's SO SO SO ugly!
BUT, I really wanted a hutch, and I wanted to spend next to nothing!
So, I wheeled and dealed, researched on pinterest how to beautify such a beast, and off I went to go pick up this huge hideous piece!


After I took off all of her ugly plastic pieces, she didn't look too bad after all!  This MAY work!



The bottom doors were extremely ugly.  So, with the help of my new friends at Lowes, I made new doors for her! 

Lots of painting and patiently waiting with this project!



I was going for a blue gray look....



it needed to be a bit more "dirty" for my taste, so I put on some glaze! 


There was a lady on facebook giving away chipped dishes, and I liked the colors, so I thought, what the heck?


Put a little permanant marker on them, and position them right in the hutch, and you'll never know the difference!

See what I mean?  
I did think that the white was a bit TOO white in this pic.  So, I added some more "dirty" (glaze) :)

The finishing pieces were just added this weekend.  Chicken Wire, and the knobs I ordered from Ebay.  The walls are being painted in this pic, but you can see how nice it turned out!  I am very pleased, and not sure about the color of the plates now, but we'll see!


So...moral of the story....give ugly a chance :)
