The Painted Hutch

It's a miracle, I finally finished a project! The china cabinet/ hutch that was sitting in my antique booth for over a year decided to come home for a makeover. Sorry, this is the best picture I could find. At least you can see how dark it was there in the background. Actually, my son painted the cabinet a while back. We had so much furniture in the antique store, I had just never gotten around to distressing and waxing it. And, of course, life gets in the way and things just sit 90% done.

We used homemade chalk paint with the unsanded grout recipe. The paint was bright white.

This cabinet had lots of details to distress. I love the way it came out.
I changed the wood knobs that were on it to some ORB knobs that I had found
on clearance at Target over a year ago.
These photos are at my booth at Lone Elm antique mall. 
I thought I would get in the Valentines spirit  with the red and white.
More of the same detail at the top!

Turns out, somebody else liked it as much as I did. It
sold the third day it was there!

Thanks for visiting, be sure to come back tomorrow for Restyled Sunday's!

I am showing my hutch off at these parties, check them out!

  1. The hutch looks beautiful - no wonder it sold so quickly.

  2. You did a beautiful job! I am not a bit surprised that it sold so quickly! I love the red plates in there.

    Have a great day!

    1. I had also had those red plates in the booth for over a year and they sold before the hutch did!

  3. New follower here...I love this makeover! I also love how you styled it with pops of red!
