Old Ochre Farmhouse Hutch

I had been looking for a second display hutch for our Chalk Paint at Loot, when I came across this vintage one at a community sale.  

It was plain and boring looking, but all the shelves and storage made it quite functional for displaying our Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and accessories. I love the spacious cupboard below that holds all of our extra cans of paint.

I painted the hutch with two coats of creamy Old Ochre Chalk Paint.  I love open shelving and they are more practical for display, so I removed the upper cabinet doors before painting the hutch.

Then, I bought some 220 grit sanding discs for my palm sander and distressed it all over.  Sanding the entire surface burnished the paint, making it silky smooth without needing any wax for protection.

I was going to order some hardware online, when I vaguely remembered that I had bought some beautiful, old bin pulls at a yard sale several months before and stuck them in my glove box.  I remembered them at the perfect time!

I love the dark, rusty bin pulls against the distressed Old Ochre Chalk Paint.

This is perfect for your paint! I love Old Ochre - it was one of my first ASCP colors and I still use it all the time!
