Painted Hutch Before & After

Rememeber the guy that bought my black accent tables???  (blog post found here) 

I just finished up his first piece – the hutch.  It used to be that forest green stain that was only popular in the early 90s, but now, it’s updated and gorgeous in black and beige.
Before:

After:

  
The exterior is painted in Annie Sloan Graphite.  The inside is Country Grey.
I did a layer of Country Grey beneath the Graphite so when I distressed the piece, you could see Counrty Grey, not forest green!! The drawer hardware was an awkward size, so I couldn’t just replace it.  I would have had to do something like drill new holes, fill holes, use a black plate blah blah blah… no thanks.  I just painted them graphite and they look great!
