If you fol this blog, you might have seen a cute little yel vanity that I just finished in what I feel like is the perfect soft yel for furniture. I love this color. It’s called Banana Cream by Behr. I had a little left over from the vanity and decided that I would use it to accent my next project.
This piece is so heavy, I couldn’t get it up onto our porch, which is where we normally take pictures. So we had to settle for our dull brown garage :(. Anyways… I painted the inside the same beautiful soft yel color as my vanity, then finished the rest of with a soft white color, refinished the hardware with black spray paint and replaced all the windows with chicken wire.
Replacing windows with Chicken Wire is incredibly easy. (You can purchase chicken wire at Home Depot or any farm supply store like IFA). I was considering doing a tutorial on how to do this, but in all honesty, ever piece is different. You sort of just have to figure it out. On this particular hutch, the windows were attached using these rubber inserts (I don’t know what they’re even called), so I just took out the glass, cut the chicken wire to size, and used the same rubber inserts to hold it together. In other cases, I have stapled the wire to the insides of the windows using a staple gun.
This beauty is currently listed in the White Cottage Shop. I love the way she turned out. At first I was a little unsure about the yel, but in the end I think it brightens up the piece so much. It would be so beautiful in a cute kitchen or dining room!
