Olivia from Rustic Owl Treasures is joining us today to show off how she transformed her Craigslist find into a rustic, farmhouse hutch with Bliss and Vanilla Frosting!

Hey y’all,

Today I am going to share a makeover of a cute little hutch that I found on Craigslist! it had a wooden back with hole cuts that just didn’t look good, but it was in good shape and really heavy, it just needed to be updated as it was the orange pine color. So here is how it started out:

I loved the little knobs on it! At first I was going to change the back to bead board, but I started painting before I decided and I started with Vanilla Frosting so it was a nice white color!

I wanted to paint the inside of the doors with Bliss and decided to also paint the drawer. It took a couple of coats to get everything coated well.

After that I distressed it a little bit and finished it all in natural wax then used a little antiquing wax on the drawer and inside the door to give it a little something more. I also love the panels on the side!

I also decided it looked better with nothing on the back so I kept the board off! Now it looks like a cute little farmhouse hutch!
