Giving old furniture Fresh Looks for the New Year!
Christmas has long passed, but the weather is still cold for most of the U.S., so I am working on inside changes to update and freshen up my home. A few years ago, my sister discovered a color of paint, which she used throughout her house where she wanted something dark and neutral. I decided to give it a try on an old hutch, that I inherited from my mother. The color is Black Fox, by Sherwin Williams. Pictured you will see the hutch, cleared of my various collectibles (mostly different types of “Blue Ware.”) I like the color black fox. The brighter background color is one that I had painted on 20 years ago. The darker area has a wash that I experimented with. Both are garish and made anything placed on the shelves look like clutter, but the Black Fox made such an improvement I decided to paint the feet, the top of the base and a stripe on the top molding.
My next step will be to change the hardware.
