Drangonflies and cool mercury glass ornaments trimmed in metal with chain hanging from the bottom. Beautiful detail.
Every tree needs an elf and this one is 43 years old.
|The Old Hutch was literally falling to pieces. It was not only covered in dust but had a Yellow Antiquing kit from the 1970's era.|
|The smoked glass panes were removed and we put plain glass back.|
|The original crystal knobs were still in good condition. My landlady said the piece was more than 100 years old back then. So the piece is close to 140 plus years now. It was handmade, quite primitive.|
|As you can see this was a major undertaking. Completely re-glueing. I'm just glad that my hubby knows how to do this!|
|The transformation begins.|
|I had plans to do Annie Sloan French Linen and distress from there, but the yellow popped out neon. So I decided to go with the ASCP Duck Egg Blue on the inside, and go French Linen over the top. I have a corner piece in the dining room that I will show you soon that also had the French Linen on it.|
|I am pleased with the rustic look, even with a tiny bit of yellow showing.|
|I found these adorable apliques that added charm to the doors.|
|The key still works!|
|It's so fun to have her back in the house.|
