French Provincial Hutch with Chicken Wire


I recently came across this french provincial hutch at a yard sale.  I can never pass on a frenchy piece, so this one came back to the shop with me for a little makeover.


The hutch was done in the typical cream and gold, which is a common look for the reproduction french provincial furniture made in  the 1970's.  I wanted to make the piece look more like an old world French antique than a tacky, vintage reproduction.


I gave it a softer look by painting it with Coco Chalk Paint®.  I wanted to create a weathered look to make the piece look authentically older. After applying two coats of Coco Chalk Paint®, I made a wash by mixing 50% Old Ochre Chalk Paint® with 50% water. I painted the wash on in sections and blended it over the Coco with a rag.

BEFORE

AFTER

The Old Ochre muted the Coco and transformed it into a soft, warm, neutral grey. After the wash dried, I applied a coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax, which made the color even more beautiful and added a smooth, creamy look. I coated the brass hardware with rustic brown spray paint to offer a nice contrast with the paint.

I painted the, previously gold, back and shelves with Old Ochre to brighten up the inside of the hutch.


The final part of the transformation was taking the glass out and replacing it with chicken wire that was also sprayed a rustic brown.   


The transformation from 1970's French provincial to antique French country is complete!

What a difference. You did a wonderful job of making it a unique piece anyone would love to have in their home. I assume that the cocoa paint is an Annie Sloan paint?

I love the colors you chose and the dimension it added. Replacing the glass with chicken wire really gave the piece a whole new look.

Very lovely. By treating the piece as a unit, rather than picking out details, and choosing a neutral color makes it so versatile. Nicely done!

Very nice Amanda-the color combo is great!

Gorgeous! I see how you did the chicken wire on the door, but however did you get it on the inside of the two side panels that don't move? I have the same exact buffet in my garage, and would love to do it over like this.

Oh wow! What a transformation! I have to admit I love chicken wire on furniture (and interiour as well). That is a lovely hutch. The color sceme is perfect, and I love the simple "dirty" look you gave it. Great idea about the wash. Must try that:) I found youre post over at MMS`s Furniture Friday party. I allso entered my own french sideboard/hutch wich I altered with putting in chicken wire. I just love how it makes for the perfect cottage feeling:) Would love to see you over at my blog sometime:) I am now youre newest follower:)
