Sometimes furniture gets abused, in this case this cute little hutch was used to store tools and paint in a shop. It is still solid enough to save from the dump. So with a little sanding and painting. Now mind you I do not usually paint wood, but this was a good candidate.
Here are a few pictures after the crackle finish was applied. It needs to set for about a week before putting on the finish coat of clear poly.
the big crack in the top isn't as noticeable and works fine with the aged look.
The hutch top looks great and loved again.
and one of the doors. Once it is coated and knobs are reinstalled, I will post a picture of it all together.
