Corner Hutch Refinish

My good friend asked me to help paint her corner hutch! If you know me, you know how much I love to work with furniture, so of course I said yes! Before:


She said it came from someone’s basement, and she’d had it for years not loving it, but not sure if she wanted to tackle the project. Every time they’d move, her hubby would ask if they should just throw it out, but she had dreams of finishing it.

Don’t we all have those pieces? I firmly believe that waiting to start a project, makes the project feel bigger. I have things that have been sitting around for years because the idea of doing it seems so big and I don’t even know where to start!

I was thrilled to help out. First I sent a few idea pics and she decided she wanted a dark, flat blue paint.

For this project we made our own Chalk paint using plaster of paris. She had previously removed all of the doors, so we began taping off the windows and painting! To be honest, she did most of the work… I was more of the slave driver! But we had it done in less than a week! And I love how it turned out!!


Costs:

Corner hutch: Free- basement find

Total cost of the refinish: About $20 for paint and elbow grease!
