Dining Room Hutch Remodeling

My mom found this hutch at a garage sales months ago and thought with a new paint job it would look great in our dining room! Heck for $30.00 we couldn't go wrong. I knew we could figure out away to make it just right! I wanted a older look so I went with a technique called 'crackling". We painted a few coats of red then a layer of the clear crackling coat and then a top coat of coco brown. Its like magic and turned out just the way I wanted it to!

Here is a before and then afters!
