Ekena Millwork Shabby Chic Custom Hutch Project

Looking for great ideas to give your home some personality that represents who you are? A great, inexpensive way to do this is to simply accent your furniture and cabinetry with decorative onlays.

Owner of Second Chance Art & Acessories, Amy Manny, from Minooka, Illinois recently custom built a beautiful hutch for one of her trade designer clients.  By itself, it is already an amazing era-piece — as if there’s a rich history behind it even though it was just built. To finish it off, why not enchant with accent details? Amy achieved this by using Ekena Millwork’s Gladstone Center Urethane Onlay and several Caputo Corner Lindenwood Onlays to create an amazing shabby chic decor! We absolutely love it!!!

We offer an incredible selection of appliques, onlays and rosettes.  These are available in urethane, wood and just recently added, composite. Whatever style, size or material you require for your specific project needs, we’ve got you covered.  They are really quick and easy to install, and can really bring your projects to life!
