Thrift Find Makeover
Hi Prim girls ,
Let me share with you this oak hutch makeover. Few weeks ago, I founded this piece in a TS , it was in good condition but still leave it as it cost $65 and that day I had no money to spend in a piece like that. Many think like $65 is not a big number, but for a piece that is not necessary to live, I sometimes think twice to buy it. Still, after I left the store, I kept thinking that the piece had potential . So come back again, and asked the manager if she can accept a deposit to hold the piece and I will pick it up by the end of the week. She replied that they can not accept deposits but as she knew that I was client there, she will put the piece hold up to Friday. Then she told me, if I changed my mind, please call her to put back the piece to the marked, how cool is that. She was so nice with me.
She told me that she going to put a higher price to the hutch, but had an accident with the glass, so it made the price down from $200 to $65.
This is the piece before,
I think the economy is affecting prices in the TS too, now everything is high. Sometimes, I have to look twice to see if entering in an antique store instead of TS, LOL. Well, we removed the doors, sanded and added a piece at top to match one in the bottom.
I choose to do it in two colors, inside off white and outside in black, distressed a little bit and stained the piece. Now, it is displaying my redware pieces. Love how it looks now.
You think that my pieces looks better with the white background? I think they look better against the white. I have my redware in other hutch before and this is the last background ( see below) . The pieces were lost in that color and I wanted to stand out and so chose a light color.
I think looks better know, did you agree with me?
Bye, Bye and see you soon,
