Mid-century Hutch – “Norma”

Reference #: DR0300

$675 (includes tax)

She was missing a door up top and the other was hanging off, her stain job had been badly redone, her backer board was cracked and she had no drawer pulls. We decided we had too many pieces waiting in the wings, so we would take a pass on this old girl. So you can imagine my surprise when a couple of months later when we were ready to do another hutch, that this piece arrived in the studio early one morning. I knew Mama Dustbin was a bit “twitchy” about leaving this piece behind and I was pretty certain we had! Apparently not. Mama had a restless night after abandoning her and might have made a phone call and might have agreed to take her and hide her from me. You see Mama has a little storage area of her own. Tucked far far away from my prying eyes. I have always been led to believe it was full of her personal household items and seasonal things. I am now increasingly skeptical that there is anything other than covertly acquired furniture by Mama Dustbin herself. A clandestine nighttime operative will be required for me to find out the depths of Mamas deceit.

So, we have a hutch. And maybe, just maybe, please don’t tell her, Mama was right again. Although the amount of work that went into this revival will take a while to forget!

We have named her Norma. She has had a revival to rival all revivals – a new tongue and groove back, filled where her upper doors once were, fresh stain, new drawer pulls and knobs, and protective coats of wax! Painted with “W.A.L.K.” a VOC free paint from Country Chic Paint’s new “Furry Friends” line, she has then been gently distressed to highlight her age rather than hide.

Despite her sudden appearance and her apparent disdain for me, as I am the one that apparently left her behind, we have bonded and letting her go will be very hard!
