IN CASE YOU MISSED IT | grain sack wash stand

Lucketts 2017 is definitely “the year of the hutch”.  I have more hutches and large pieces in general than I have in previous years, but I am trying to round that out with smaller pieces that will be easier on-the-spot purchases.

This is one of those small pieces that I picked up a few weeks ago…

It really wasn’t bad as it was.  It could’ve used a coat of Hemp Oil to freshen it up, but I’ve learned that wood pieces don’t sell all that well for me, so I painted it out in Grain Sack from the MMSMP line…a grayish white that would work nicely with the marble top.  The painting was a tag-team effort between Debbie and I.  Debbie, by the way, has been amazing.  She is filling in, since Kriste is on maternity leave, and I don’t know what I would do without her!

She hasn’t done much painting before, but she is a natural and a very tidy painter.

Anyway, once the paint was dry, I distressed it and sealed it with Tough Coat.  If you’d like to see the distressing technique I use, you can find a tutorial HERE.

I added some glass knobs from Hobby Lobby that tie in perfectly with the warm veins in the marble.  The coolest feature of this piece, though, is the pull-out towel bar…

I didn’t even notice it until I carried it into the studio.  What a clever little thing, isn’t it?

And it pushes back in when it’s not in use…

I love how the finish on this one turned out.  It just the right amount of chipping.

It’s coming to Lucketts along with everything else!

My mom and I went shopping for smalls today and among the smalls I bought, I bought a hutch.

I just can’t help myself.
