OK ladies, why do we feel like a gigantic china hutch is something we have to cross off the list of must-haves when first furnishing a home?
Maybe a better question is, what do we do with our beloved hutch when we no longer cherish it in a way we once did?
Mine sat in storage and then in the garage for nearly three years.
Then the night before I was planning to put it out for our annual yard sale, I had a bit of panic and decided I just couldn’t sell it.
I decided I would paint it and give it a new life!
Here is my hutch before:
And tada! The After:
I was originally planning to change out the feet, but once I got it painted I decided they could stay Now I just need to paint them.
I love it more than I ever did and to think it sat in storage for almost three years! This was my very first chalk-painted piece. I used Annie Sloan’s Old White, and sealed it with her clear soft wax.
I did finish painting the feet… and the Fall decor is long gone.
And I still love it!
It’s been a few years since I originally shared this hutch, and it is still going strong in my dining space:
I changed it up a bit by adding this pretty damask paper to the back. See more details HERE.
I also painted this dining room table to match:
Check out how it turned out HERE!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
