Amazing friends, the piece I am sharing today belongs my awesome Mom! She has wanted this hutch painted for a very long time now:
It is such a lovely piece of furniture, but with the dark floors and the dark kitchen cabinets to the left of this piece, it made this area feel like a dark hole.
Before I get to the big reveal, I’m being joined by my Furniture Fixer Upper girls today, so be on the lookout for their furniture makeovers at the bottom!
Painting the Hutch
She immediately chose the Buttercream.
Here it is with one coat on the bottom and two coats on the top:
She was afraid it looked too white before seeing the second coat go on.
I ultimately gave it a total of three coats for solid coverage, and after three days of work, it was complete:
It took almost a whole 32 oz sized jar to paint it doing three coats.
This is such a lovely soft, buttery color. It almost has a very slight yellow undertone and I think that is what makes it such a pretty color. Drop cloth has no yellow undertones.
I only lightly sanded with 220 grit sandpaper as my Mom does not like a ton of heavy distressing…
This is my Mom’s set of transferware that has always been on this hutch, and I think the lighter color is a much prettier backdrop.
Here is a pic she found on her cell phone from a few years ago:
She may have taken that one mid jumping jack.
She also wanted to change out the original wooden knobs, and I was lucky enough to find a set of these pretty ones in my stash at home that were perfect:
I found these at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago and had forgotten all about them!
I couldn’t have found anything better if I tried!
The sides of this pretty hutch give it a farmhouse feel…
And in this photo, you can see a peek at the living room. This hutch now matches the rest of the space better!
And here it is from the other side looking towards the dining area and kitchen…
That area feels so much lighter and more airy now, and it is a nice contrast to the dark floors and cabinets in the kitchen.
I hope y’all enjoyed this one, I know my Mom did!
Don’t forget my friends are sharing furniture flips of their own today!
I’ll be back on Tuesday with this case I picked up for $4.98:
I’ve been hanging onto this one for a while so it will be nice to see it done!
UPDATE: It’s done and it turned out better than I thought it would! See it HERE now! 🙂
Then, I’ll return on Thursday with the sofa table a couple of y’all wanted to see! Have a great weekend and stay safe!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
