White & Duck Egg Blue Hutch

 I painted this hutch with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in White and Duck Egg Blue.

The top was stripped and stained with Minwax Dark Walnut.  I used the soft wax as the final step.

I'm not sure if I'm going to put the doors back on the hutch or not.  For now I like the open look without the doors.

My assistant, Smokey, insisted that the vignette be adjusted.

This is a look at the before.
