This is a country style kitchen hutch of my own design. The bottom half has tip out potato and onion bins and a large drawer. The top half has microwave counter with above storage cabinet.. I used dark walnut dye, , walnut gel stain ,and a gel top coat for the finish.

That is one beautiful piece of furniture. Very much like my Grandmother’s of yesteryear. (I’m remembering 1940-1952 or so and it had been in her use for many years before). The assymetric stars really set the doors off. Finish is super also.

I’ve had a vague idea about doing the same thing and now it’s becoming a little less vague.
Top notch job.

Thank you guys for the nice comments.
I built this for my daughter who gave me a rough idea of what she wanted. She, like my wife likes the primitive country look. At first she wanted it made out of pine and painted black and distressed… cringe…. I’m so glad I talked her out of that. Lucky me I was able to get the walnut at a great price and had fun building it.
Here is a link to my question about how to use dye on this project that shows a picture of the bottom half unfinished.

Have your say...
