Hall Tree Re-Do

Last week we went to a garage sale and I picked up this awesome Hall Tree.  It was badly in need of repair though - the seat had been broken clean off the hinges and the wood was worn and scratched.  I couldn't wait to get it home and start working on it.


The entire piece got a quick sanding and then washed down...



The top panel originally had 6 mirrors inserted.  One of them was broken and we had to put on our thinking caps to figure out what to do about that.  Keep reading to find out what we ended up doing.  We also removed the 5 coat hooks and gave them a good cleaning....


The seat was in really bad shape - quite scratched and stained.  It took me longer to sand that out then it did the entire rest of the piece.


I was torn on what color to paint it - I had 2 Fusion colors that I really liked but in the end Bayberry won out!   I purchased this color last week at my new favorite shop - From Shabby to Fabby.  They supply paint through mail order as well as in-store, so if you're dying to try out Fusion paint, go check out their website.



I did 2 coats of the Bayberry and it covered beautifully...



 We re-used the original black hardware hooks....


Louie cut a piece of wood to fit inside one of the panels and I painted it with 2 coats of chalk paint to make a chalk board where one of the mirrors was missing....


We reattached the seat using new hardware...


Check out all that great storage....


I just love the Bayberry color and I will definitely be using it again in the future...


This little beauty is for sale in the Chicago area.  Contact me if you're interested.     SORRY ALREADY SOLD!
