Bertha the Vintage School Cabinet turned Hutch

This is one of my favorite transformations, I named her Bertha. She started out a vintage cabinet from a school.

I added crown molding and a few wood appliques. Then I took off the handles and locks and puttied up the holes. Then she got a light sand. I painted her back with mint chalk paint. Once she was dry I taped off stripes and I painted the base of the cabinet. Then this happened....

He (my husband) said there was enough room for two bodies, too much CSI, LOL. Then I painted her doors and shelves. Bertha got a light distress with sand paper, a wipe of light stain and a wax finish. She's was stunning at almost 7' tall an 4' wide.  She's been in her new home for a while.  But if you ever see an old cabinet with glass doors just think of the possibilities!
