I painted my hutch yellow. And I love it because the color 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.
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…
sincerely, sara d.
