UNika Custom Creations, LLC in Middletown, DE, transformed a beautiful Mid Century Modern hutch into this sweet country cabinet painted with American Paint Company,‬ Amber Waves of Grain inside the hutch and Country Barn for its exterior, lightly distressed and finished with APC Top Coat.  Nothing says ‪‎country‬ like ‪‎chicken‬ wire, only this wire is dark and smaller in size. Sweet!  This would fit great in a bathroom too for towels and extra needed storage! Notice the ‪‎rooster‬ knob adding to the charm of this solid piece & lined with a subtle checkered pattern to accent Amber Waves of Grain.
