Dining Hutch Before & After Reveal

This Dining Room Hutch was a Kijiji find for $75 (Plus $20 for DELIVERY!) I loved the size of it and all it's details... It is a true Statement piece!! I painted the Hutch in BM Natural Linen Paint. We covered the dated and cheap looking faux wood backing in my fav. bead board wallpaper!! Then painted the backing a clean crisp 'White'. I filled in the old hardware holes and added new Restoration Hardware Crystal knobs to the Glass doors.. 
Simple changes for a completely NEW Look!! 

The inside was a plain faux wood backing.. So we jazzed it up a bit with some bead board wallpaper and painted it 'white'.. It's now a nice backdrop for my Grandparent's antique dishes.. So happy that I finally have a spot to showcase them!
This was the base of the Hutch.. I fell in love with the shape of it but hated the big handles.. I felt it dated it.. SO I filled in the holes with wood filler, waited for it to dry.. Then gave it a really good sanding.. And then I went on to the fun part... painting it.. I painted it in left over BM Natural Linen Paint from our Previous house. 

I purchased this Hutch for our new Dining Room.. We finally had a separate Dining space and I loved all the added storage and display space it gave us!! This is a picture of our Hutch from our move-in day... Without Handles and No Dishes inside.. Fit's the new space and fills the wall nicely.
The newly added beadboard is a more appealing backdrop for all the dishes and
The metal grill over the glass really pops now with the new paint colour.
 We Changed out the old hardware for 2 oil rubbed bronze Crystal Knobs from 
Restoration Hardware.

I feel like you can see all the wood details more now with the lighter paint colour.
