French Provincial Hutch Makeover

Happy March, can you believe Spring is right around the corner?
I'm so ready!
I'm def ready to do some much needed spring cleaning..

This week I decided I am going to give my hutch another makeover.
I found this gem at my local Habitat for $29, what a steal, it had some damage as
 you can see in the before pic, there was a large hole in the back of it. But for that kind of money, heck I would accepted and fixed much worse. I had always wanted one of these but nearly all of them have been plucked and redone by furniture restorers on CL who want sell them for $500.. 
ya no thanks..
Seriously, all you did was paint it white? 
Come on now...

So it rocked the three tone Annie Sloan Chalk paint look for the last three years,
 and I really think I'm ready for something fresh and different.

I like when in kitchens, all the cabinetry and wood have the same hue and or tone.
And since my dining room is open to the kitchen it all kind of goes together. 

I kind of feel like this stands out like a sore thumb in comparison to everything else. 
It could just be in my head tho:)

Sometimes, you just a need a fresh new look!

So here's what I'm thinking..

I love the medium to dark grey.
I think it would really pop with all my white dishes.

I think the grey would also add a bit of masculinity to a very feminine piece.

I absolutely love this ASCP in Paloma. It has that grey lavender hue. 
My kitchen cabinets have a lavender undertone in them and I adore it.

I also love this look, where the paint has been layered on and it
 look like it has patina'd over the years.

I love both top and bottom looks and could see a sea grass basket full of dried lavender on top? Eh??

I also love the idea of incorporating the grain sack line in the back.
It would also tie in with my framed grain sack that hangs across from the
 hutch in the living room.

Choices, choices... I honestly think I can't go wrong with any of these and you know... 
I can always rock one look for a few years and then change it out again?

The beauty of paint.
What is your favorite look?

Thanks for stopping friends and have a great Wednesday!
