Happy Monday!   This week I’m sharing this cute little hutch/curio cabinet project.  Last year I decided on gathering some things that I could re-purpose, paint, and work on to help me survive the winter.  This little hutch cabinet was one of my finds. Little did I know that I would love the winter as much as I did and that I would have no time to work on it. I also decided to wait to see what kind of home we would end up with and how I would use this cabinet.  Fast forward to now and I’m here to share the end result.  A hutch makeover with bun feet fun project.

This is a hutch BEFORE look.  The girl that I bought it from, got it form her grandmother and after several years, she no longer really had a purpose for it.  My win.

With four shelves and 3 bottom drawers, this  cute storage cabinet would come in handy.  And those cute arches—it deserved a makeover!

I decided on a farmhouse style look.   To achieve that look, it would need paint and I thought of adding some cute bun feet.  I had previously found these cute decorative bun feet when I couldn’t decide on which ones to use on my kitchen island.  They worked perfectly for this project.

Changing out the old drawer knobs with these cute ones I had left over from another project, added fun detail.

What I did:

After some coats of antique white chalk paint, I sanded random areas to expose the dark stain underneath.  That was followed with some antiquing in various areas and sealing wax. I drilled four holes to attach the plates in which to anchor the bun feet to.  Viola!!!  We had a whole new piece!

For now, it’s home is in the upstairs foyer and filled with knick-knacks.  It will get re-arranged often but it will be fun to have this piece be a part of our home now.

Adding bun feet are a great addition – don’t you think?  They can really add some great dimension to a piece.
