$25.00 Hutch Make-over

This hutch was purchased at a garage sale back in June.  I was so excited because I have been wanting one for awhile and the price was great. It sat in my garage for 2 months and finally I was determined to finish it. 

After cleaning the mouse "gifts" left behind from the previous owners, I set off to painting it.
I used Valspar Baby Blue spray paint and six cans later it was covered.  I thought it was a little bit too "new" looking and so I added a glaze.  My kids asked me why I like everything to look dirty...I am pretty obsessed with my glaze I will admit that.

I replaced the glass with gardening wire I found at Lowe's and added some great knobs from Hobby Lobby.

Now I have to figure out if I want to keep it or sell it.  Any Takers...hahaha!
