China Hutch with Chicken Wire and Decoupage Reciepes


 a little bit Country, a little bit Chicken and a lot of Recipes!

I can't say this was easy, if you have any questions
let me know, 
I just had to add a chicken to the recipes!
All recipes came from a Norman Rockwell

All knobs, except top two, were painted and patina with
a burgundy/ red  touch of paint.
This picture does not show the detail :{  Camera for Xmas

I had picked up these knobs in my travels, I thought they looked like
chicken feet marks on them?   Well I thought so, and the colors were perfect!
This was my inspiration for the knobs I painted.

finally, got a clear picture, and with
the iPhone for the above knobs!!
 great camera!
Two pieces, so it was stored backwards, hey, just
lucky to get it in the garage!

Ugly, but liked the circles, and I was going to save them for a future
project, maybe paint , who knows?   I told myself
to throw them in the trash!  So I did!
Darn, the trash man came already!  So they are GONE :{
I just know I will need them!???

When I  sweet talked the husband in moving it outside
for this picture,  I only had so much time before it went back in!
If you know what I mean!  I was lucky enough to run in the house and grab one
chicken item to put on the hutch!
No retaking now by moving it out again, sweet talk works
one piece, one time only!
I always save (in a baggie sealed tight) my last
used brush, foam brush or what ever I am using!See, I found a few small touch ups!
 I had just the right amount of
stain on the foam brush to fix it.  Honest, the brush will stay for days, especially paint, but poly no!

Until next time,

Beautiful transformation! Love the chicken wire and the recipes were inspired! And sweet talking the hubby to help move furniture for photos happens around here all the time too!

What a beautiful makeover!
I used chicken wire in my kitchen buffet too - how do take care of " points " that stick out ( hubby's always complaining that he keeps getting jabbed lol )

A beautiful transformation, and I love chicken wire and thinks it looks so good. My hubs looks at me and says, what needs to be moved today? Very pretty! Thanks for sharing your inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

GREAT tip with saving your brush for touch ups. I always have touch ups. I love your transformation. It's pure genius to decoupage with recipes and I LOVE the chicken on the recipe.

You did a great job, the chicken wire looks great and I really like the cookbook pages inside the hutch. Thanks for visiting!
