Jesyka D’Itri over at Visual Vocabulary did a remarkable makeover on a china hutch a few months ago. The original piece had a lot of scratches, missing pieces and a broken door, but she really kept on it and was able to bring it back to life in a very unique, stylized and surprising way…

After sanding and stripping the wood, repairing the door and getting new glass for the broken cabinet, Jesyka was ready to get her style on.

She wanted to paint this piece and wasn’t going to take the easy way out, instead she had a vision for it that would take some time and precision. She created a cool tri-colored effect with the blue, white and gold trim and added a nice touch of texture with the gold and white chevron contact paper. The finished piece is a one-of-a-kind eye-catching piece that shows a lot of love went into making it a reality.
