My Red Hutch

My red hutch has an interesting story to tell. 
Randy's Mamaw Bean bought the buffet bottom part back in the 40's and when she died in 1978, Randy's parents inherited the piece and several years later gave it to us. 
We eventually found the unfinished hutch part at our JC Penney Outlet store. 
So, one day I decided to take on my very first painting project and proceeded to paint the two pieces red. I was so nervous, but knew right away I had found a new passion... painting furniture! 
The paint was in the 'oops' section at Home Depot for $2.00. All the eclectic knobs & pulls were found on clearance at Target over a period of many years. I especially love the spoon handles. Anyway, I could not have been more pleased with the final results!
