UPDATE: Your wish is my command . . . because I love you. Also, I am interested in your advice on what type of drawer and cabinet pulls would you use? You'll notice on the tv cabinet that I haven't picked out pulls for that either. If you have ever had the pleasure of building your own house you will understand my desire to never make another decision again in my life.
I'm just sayin'.
I found the inspiration for this hutch in a magazine.
I had no idea where to find it on the market so I showed it to Johnie (his spelling.)
He is amazing. The pictures really do not do justice to his work.
His shop teacher told him, "you will never have a future in wood." hahahahahaha.
Whew, that was a good one. Some of us are just late bloomers.
This is one example of his trim work in our home
and this is the TV cabinet he made in our living room.
I don't have many pictures of the before because the lighting was really bad.
But still, I do love you. :)
D e t a i l s . . . anyone?
Cast of characters.
Meet Holly, well the back of her head, she was camera shy.
We started with maple, stained the entire thing, inside and out, with Minwax provincial stain.
Then she painted the front only with Sherwin Williams oil base paint in green black , she sanded and sanded and sanded. Then she sealed everything with a polyurethane.
And now for the close ups.
This week's projects were; the hutch for the breakfast room. Pretty darn slick don't you think?
The bead board in the back was hand made and the iron detail in the doors was also hand-made by Blaze, who just graduated high school. It has that imperfect look, I love that about it.
