The Ugly Duckling

Good morning on this crisp Virginia day!  We are finally starting to see and feel fall around Northern Virginia / Washington D.C. area!  I wanted to share a fun before + after vintage furniture transformation that Heather tackled in the warehouse a few weeks back on one of our studio days.   With me being 34 weeks pregnant (yes can you believe it I’m in my 9th month!) Heather + Christina are doing most of the heavy lifting these days.  I am more of a director than a participant when it come to furniture painting at the moment.  But enough small talk on to the good stuff!

This china hutch was / is a beast.  But I fell in love with the curvy top and carving on the drawers and had to to buy her.  I saw beyond the yellowish wood and massive size and saw something really majestic, hollywood regency ish in her.


I paint most of our hutches in light / neutral colors but I couldn’t resist a statement color on this beauty! We use Coastal Blue by General Finishes and a little Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint mixed in. We love how she turned out!  You can come and see her at our Rough Luxe warehouse open every Saturday 10-5pm!


Come and see us this Saturday for our Holiday Toy Drive + Family Photo Opportunity!
