A painted Hutch!
Whenever I look at the hutch in my living room I see white! All I want is a nice white hutch! So, finally I had the Farmer carry it into his shop, for me to sand and paint.
First things first, sand! Sand! Sand! I usually skip the sanding part and go right to the painting part, but because this hutch was poorly paint/stained by the previous owners I decided to sand it. I recommend using a power sander. You could do it by hand..if you have all day.
After sanding it, pour some paint remover onto an old rag and wipe all the dust off. Make sure you get into all the little cracks and crannies. ** Put some gloves on for this part.
Grab your paint and a brush and start painting. I did 2 coats, with 3.5 hours in between (I bought a paint with a primer already in it), however if you feel the need to do more, GO for it!
Let dry over night.
I have yet to decided if I should sand the edges to give it that shabby chic look…If I do, I will do a second post showing you the best way to achieve the shabby chic look.
Check back in a few days to see the FINISHED product and the name of the paint I used.
