For the past umpteen years Charlie and I have been using this hutch his grandfather painted and glazed in the 2nd floor laundry room as a sort of towel and sheet storage closet.
Now that we have a new space eked out for linen storage for the new bathroom we’re going to take the hutch apart and try to use just the bottom.
This seems to be a theme with us as we also removed the top from my mother’s breakfront to create a kitchen island.
The plan is to use the bottom part in the 37-inch niche as the bottom of the linen press.
Then we’re going to hang the newly purchased glass-front cabinet above it.
And I have some drawer pulls left over from the kitchen installation to upgrade the hardware.
Charlie has given his OK to paint the piece.
Now, the question is, what color. Maybe sparrow like the exterior doors.
Or something between Sparrow and Revere Pewter. Perhaps a custom color mixed in the atelier of Jo.
If this cabinet really doesn’t work out we’ll head back to the cabinet warehouse to try and locate a reasonably price new cabinet. But we like to use what we have if we can.
What color would you paint this piece?
