I painted my hutch yellow. And I love it because the yellow painted hutch brightens up my kitchen nook.
I forgot to get an actual before picture before I started paint testing the hutch. And no, I don’t normally keep daffodils in my hutch. I had just picked a bouquet and thought they were so pretty and had to share… I fell in love with my dining room set in an antique store.
I looked beyond the giant lace doily (that thing is HUGE, isn’t it?!) and saw potential in this set. You can see more about my dining room HERE and check out my dining room chair update HERE. The hutch was in really bad shape, and I wasn’t really up to refinishing it. (And I was already dreaming about a yellow hutch.)
I used chalk paint in my hutch’s update – no sanding, priming, prepping required! To see a full tutorial on chalk paint, click HERE.
I prefer Annie Sloan’s chalk paint, but she didn’t have the exact yellow I was envisioning. So, I bought some chalk paint on Etsy and mixed in some cream chalk paint I had on hand to lighten it up a little. I bought “That’s the last straw” from the Etsy shop ChauxBelle. My hutch makes me happy.
And the painting continues…
