Island & Hutch - Antique Paint Technique

My DW completed the 1000-step painting technique on the island and hutch. OK, 1000 might be a bit of an exaggeration, but it was a lot of work - and it turned out great. Here is a picture of the assembled hutch:

The final process ended up being:
  • Sand
  • Prime
  • Caulk and fill (easier to see holes and seams when its primed)
  • Sand
  • Paint - 3 coats
  • Glaze
  • Seal with polycrylic
I'm glad she has the stamina for this. I would tint the primer and be done! Here is a close-up of the crown.

Here is the center section that is going to be a plate rack. We still need to paint the spindle.

Here is the end of island.
