it's me..tiffini from house of belonging how are you today? good i hope...smile:)
i want to share our hutch makeover and how with some paint & shopping your home you can transform a hutch from drab to fab!
you can change the way a "space" feels and how YOU feel about that space!
i wish you could stand here with me to see the difference in the "feel" of the room just by painting our hutch
we purchased this very heavy piece from our local antique store it was brown. very brown
at first that was the look i was going for. some wood mixed up with the metal table after a couple of months i just wasn't feeling it
as time went on it just became a dead piece of furniture sitting in the corner
i was scared i would ruin it if i painted it. like "what if" i didn't love it? paint is easy to put on..not so easy to take off! then there is my motto #theartoflivingcourageously
we voted to paint it! and WOW! happy happy we did!!
i was going to paint my master bedroom oyster pearl but it just didn't read well in there
much to our surprise it reads perfectly on our hutch with all of the natural light the kitchen gets
it took about 3 coats
we sanded the edges lightly and that was it
we painted the hardware and the lamp base gold we simply shopped our house for everything else
here is what we used
our white dishes//cookbooks//an old gold frame//nikki's creepy head lady//a few anthropolgie mugs// color coordinated books
paint really did give give this neat old hutch life again..it is perfect for our light and happy home
what a difference some paint, hardware and a little styling can do right?
what do you think of the hutch before and after?
i'm already thinking about staging it for the fall months
are you thinking about fall too? sigh..i love fall. it is my favorite month i'm just not ready to let go of the long days of summer
