Hello awesome Friends! It’s Thursday and if you saw my super sweet makeover on Tuesday, you know I’m back today sharing what I did with this pretty hutch:
You may have seen this on my Facebook page last week along with some other fun finds I scored.
I sold almost all the furniture I had left in my booth in January, so I needed furniture to flip, and fast! I decided to head out for a day of thrifting last Thursday. I stopped at seven stores and found a few treasures to help get me started on replenishing my booth.
I found this hutch on my last stop. It was only $99 at one of my favorite thrift stores, and I had a $5 off coupon too! Coupons at the thrift store? I have no shame! 🙂
$94 was a steal for this beauty:
You were expecting white weren’t you? I went full on blue on this one, and I just love how it turned out.
I love hutches anyway, and rarely pass on a good deal on one when I see one. They are so charming and offer a ton of storage!
White hutches do sell great, but I decided this one needed my favorite blue, Behr’s Gray Morning (mixed 50/50 with Pure White) that I made into DIY chalk paint.
I did start out painting this one white:
But that was just so that when I sanded, white would show through the blue. Isn’t the first coat always so ugly??
It was a beautiful and unexpectedly warm weekend here last week, so I spent all weekend outside with my paintin’ pants on!
I only needed to add one coat of blue over the white…
It’s kind of hard to see, but after sanding white showed through on all the raised parts…
You can see better in this close up:
Anyone for tea?
I removed the glass in the cabinets to make painting them easier. This is easy to do if you have these rubber pieces holding the glass in place:
They just pop in and out.
I kept the original handles after spray priming them, then painting with Rustoleum’s Satin White:
And you can see I lined the drawers with this pretty drawer liner I found at the thrift store for 99¢:
I only had enough to do the top two drawers, but the other drawer is in great condition inside.
I had a few of these knobs left over that I found at HomeGoods for this girly dresser:
Some pretty coastal inspired ones like little starfish would have been really cute too. I sealed everything with Annie Sloan’s clear wax, and now it’s all set to head to the shop. Just need some muscles to help me get it there. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed today’s makeover!
