Two-Toned Hutch Makeover


I finished this hutch the night before our sale, this past weekend.  I waited until the last minute because I was anticipating the arrival of my order of Pure White Chalk Paint in the mail.  I was excited to try the new Chalk Paint color and I thought it would be the perfect color for transforming this farmhouse hutch.  


When I got the hutch it was outdated with an orange finish and gold hardware. Nancy suggested that I take the doors off and I think it was a wonderful idea.  The doors made the piece look heavy and contributed to the outdated look of the hutch.  


I mixed Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint with gray latex paint to create the subtle, beautiful shade of blue.  The gray paint had green undertones, so the color came out a pretty mix between pale blue and green.  I love the look of the new Pure White paint against the soft, greenish-blue background.




This hutch was a beast to paint because of all the shelves and angles.  I really thought it would never end! 


I replaced the drawer hardware with some simple, metal flower knobs that I took from a dresser I am working on.  I painted the metal knobs with a mixture of 50-50 water and Pure White Chalk Paint.  I kept the existing door pulls on the bottom cabinet doors and gave them a coat of whitewash too.  One of the pulls was broken, so I patched the hole and left it off the middle, faux door.  I originally wanted to replace the hardware, but hardware is just too expensive, so I decided to work with what I already had.
