Annie Sloan Chalk Paint {Burlap Hutch-Old White}

I am so glad I love what I do. Although sometimes it is quite exhausting trying to keep up with things, I wouldn't change it for the world. I could never imagine going back into the corporate world and being a 9-5'er. I am so grateful that my husband has been able to provide for our family, allowing me to stay home with our crazy kiddos. I have to remember every now and then to show him some gratitude and to thank him for allowing me to do pretty much whatever I want with my time. So, this weekend his brother is in town and they are going to celebrate his 40th birthday. My hubby is somewhat of a beer snob. He loves all aspects of it..how it is made, what to eat with it, what glass to use and where it is comes from. This Friday we are getting together with a bunch of friends and having a beer tasting. Well the guys will be tasting and the girls will be yapping. Then on Saturday he and his brother will be heading to an all day beer festival here in Dallas. Good luck going to a beer festival the night after a beer tasting. We will see if those 40 years have caught up with him yet!  I think I will just sit back and watch the show.  Drink up Honey, you deserve it!

Well we all have our obsessions and my latest one, for sure, is old white & burlap hutches. I love making them, I love how the burlap adds texture and rusticness to what would otherwise seem like a simple hutch. This one is quite the biggin'! It is really a 9 drawer dresser with a random hutch added to the top. Once again, I wish I was in my 'forever' house. I really love this piece and will be quite sad when it sells. My hubby always laughs at me when I pout, just a little, after something sells but this one may bring the all out tears. I know, I know kinda' ridiculous to have a business selling furniture then being upset when you do. I never said I made much sense.  I, again, being the terrible and impatient blogger that I am forgot to take before pics. Again 70's , blah, orange, blah, scratched up, blah, blah, blah...












I had this idea to do burlap hutches for quite some time. I did get some inspiration from some crazy talented bloggers that I follow. Unfortuantely it was pre-Pinterest for me and I can only find one.  Kathie at a A Few Good Pieces did an AH-mazing job on this one!

  1. I can see why you like the white hutch with the burlap backing. How did you attach the burlap?..or did I miss that part?

  2. Thanks! All I did was take the press board off of the back trim, ironed, burlap to size, hot glue it on and then use finishing nails to re-adhere. Easy Peasy! Just know it has to be done out of the humidity or the burlap will start to sag after awhile. Learned the hard way;)

  3. What a great idea! The burlap looks beautiful with the pretty color of your hutch! The soft white and burlap work so well together! This was a big job!
    Wonderful!

  4. love it,gives me a thought for a wardrobe I have to redo...has not sold and sometime you have to rethink what you did. I have it posted on my blog,the Paris grey wardrobe,I stenciled silver on the bottom section and along both sides...but even at a good price of 120.00 has not sold so back to the drawing board. I might go Old White with a CoCo wash with Burlap on the door in an upholstry treatment,plus add two drawers

    Again love some of your project.WWW.katskalamities.blogspot.com

    1. I have learned that any furniture that I stencil sits and sits and sits. I guess it is such a personal thing..although pretty not everyone like them. I have 2 small tables that I think are super cute but have been sitting there since Christmas.

  7. Sure do like that hutch with burlap. Can't believe how versatile burlap has become and used for home decorating and art. I've learned to use burlap alot to decorate, love that it's fairly inexpensive, has a variety of colors. It's so great how many people are crafting and sewing. I spend alot of time reading blogs and savings projects/tutorials. Sometimes I'll be in my craft/computer room til 2 A.M.

    1. Too Funny! My Grams and I would get up at dawn and go to flea markets and garage sales. She would always look at the sky and say 'SkyBluPink..just beautiful'. No other choice but to name my biz that!

  24. What an awesome job on that piece and I can imagine how ugly it was. It is a work of art now. I noticed you have a special needs son (we have a daughter with Down Syndrome.) BTW, love this post and I featured it at Cedar Hill Ranch's Facebook page, so grab a featured button if you like.

  27. Very pretty! I can understand getting attached to the pieces you work on - after all, you put your love and creativity into each. Those are hard things to send out into the world. :)
