This corner hutch cabinet was originally constructed by our client’s father in the 1970’s and eventually given to our client. While its sentimental value remained high, the cabinet’s style did not fit into her current home decor. CKV was hired to update the style, add locks to the bottom doors, trade the solid, fixed shelf for an adjustable glass one, and add lighting and a wine rack. In the course of these updates, we repaired and reinforced the piece, then sanded, primed, and top coated the cabinet in a matte black lacquer finish.
On delivery day, we were lucky to have the original hands that built the piece to help us carry it in and put it in place. Our client, and her father, couldn’t be happier with the finished piece – and it was a pretty proud day for our team as well.
We put over 50 hours into the refinishing of this corner hutch cabinet! Refinishing is not just about repainting; it’s also about improving any structural weaknesses that have developed over time. While it is not always cost effective to refinish furniture, when the sentimental value is high it is likely to be worth every penny.
