I like to paint furniture. It's been a while since I have braved a painting project with three kids, but here it is, my latest makeover.
I got a hutch on Craiglist for $12o from a real OC housewife in Coto de Caza. ( No, I don't watch that show!) It was built in the 1950's in Vermont. Nothing really special about it, but it had potential.
You'll just have to imagine the "before" picture. Old wood split in several places, flaking varnish, and a slightly musty smell that said, "You can just leave me in the garage." Which I did.
About two months, some serious gluing and sanding, two coats of primer, some more sanding, two coats of off-white paint, one coat of burnt umber glaze and a topcoat later, it looks like this:
It holds some dishes, my place mats, tablecloths and all our games. I'm really happy how it turned out!
