Corner Hutch with Chalk Board Paint

Here is a peek at a corner unit hutch that I just finished.  I painted it in Annie Sloan Old White, with a bit of distressing and 2 coats of clear wax.

The owner loved that it had lots of storage, but didn't like the clear glass, so we decided to do the doors in real chalk board paint.  I love how it turned out, and now when she hosts her skin care home parties, she can write what ever she pleases on the doors. Such a great idea!!

I didn't want the orange stain to come through when I distressed, so I did a coat of Graphite around the edges before the white.

And here is the finished product!!

To finish the doors in chalk board paint, I used 2 coats of Kilz primer directly on the glass and then about 5 coats of chalk board paint.  I applied it with a brush.  You get a few brush strokes, but it works better than a roller.  The roller leaves horrible air bubbles.

I am OBSESSED with finding pretty shelf liner!  haha
