Before, the bottom part.
This was the decoration at the top of the hutch I wanted to change, so I glued on those little wood appliques.
Here's the after:
I kept the original hardware, which has that rustic look, (think Pottery Barn, only cheaper!)
Here is a hanging hall fixture that was brass that I desperately wanted to replace, but instead repainted with a $1.00 can of spray paint, and $1.97 for candle socket covers. The plastic socket covers crumbled in my hand as I took them off to paint!
At least I didn't spend this much at Pottery Barn for these:
Gothic Lantern $269
Brunswick Pendant $149
