Fusion ash ~ little lamb hutch


I have had a wood hutch staring at me everyday in my studio for some time now, it has begged to be painted Fusion Mineral Paint's ash so finally it got its day of glory. Ash is a lovely charcoal color.


Like all my reloved pieces, it had hardware removed, the glass pieces & backing too and given a good scrub. This is key to paint adhesion and smooth application. I wanted to update the hardware too so old holes were filled.



I tested the Fusion Mineral Paint ash on the hutch far right side, perfect



the coat of ash went on perfectly on the whole body including doors which I removed for better coverage

 

Now to add definition to the details, I tried the new black wax but it was not quite dark enough so went with a wash of black glaze over the entire piece.


With the details now popping I gave it a dry over night


For the backing, I chose Fusion Mineral Paint's Little Lamb to brighten the inside but keep the whole piece a neutral modern feel.

New silver knobs added to this modern vibe as well.
