"This hutch has been passed around my family for years. When it made its way back to me, I knew I wanted a modern farmhouse feel. I used Chapin Gray Chalk Style Paint on the case, Antique Walnut Gel Stain on the drawers and top, and dry brushed Lamp Black Milk Paint on the knobs. I've been a big fan of your gel stains for awhile now, but this was my first time using General Finishes paints. They will be my first choice going forward!" - Reminiscence Designs by GEA
