Grandma's Cabinet Redo

I recently refurbished my Great Grandma's Hutch {I don't know if that's really the correct term. It just flows for me!}

I found this old picture of it in it's original finish. Gotta love the orangey....and the pro photog skills.. NOT!

Later, I decided I would try it black to go with the striped curtains....
After living with it this color for a while, it started looking like a tarantula in the corner to me {or a tarantulata as Makenzie calls it}

I was really going to paint it white, but after *much* discussion with the hubby, he suggested I try and sand/distress it...

I listened {for once} and I LOVE it!!!!

That's all for now :)

Have a beautiful week!!
