Hi friends, today I am so excited to share this project I have been working on for the past few weeks. I purchased this hutch a few years ago but wasn’t sure how I wanted to refinish it. After looking into a few options, I decided to go with the Americana Chalky Finish paint by DecoArt. I am thrilled with how this China Hutch Makeover turned out!
Here is how the buffet and hutch looked originally. The hutch had some damage so I didn’t get a pic of it all put together before I painted it. But this piece had the lovely speckled wood 80’s finish common to so many furniture pieces.
After removing all the doors and hardware, I got started. The beauty of chalky finish paint is you don’t have to sand which saved me a ton of work! Instead I went ahead and used the stainblocker as a base to prevent bleed through and staining through the paint. This took a little time because it has a recommended cure time of 5-7 days.
After my stainblocker was cured it was time to paint. I used 2-3 coats of chalky finish paint in Everlasting.
I decided to paint a contrasting color on the back in a blue/grey color called Yesteryear.
After paint I used the creme wax to seal the piece.
After it is all cured and buffed I installed the doors and hardware.
I am thrilled with how it turned out, the chalky finish made this huge job so much easier. What do you think of the finished product?
