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?

Beautiful! I love the color and look of your hutch. I’ve been wanting to paint several of my old pieces. How much paint did the hutch require (how many jars/ounces)?
Hi Carolyn, I took a lot more than I originally thought because I did about 3 coats to make sure I had complete coverage and I sanded a bit here and there where it needed it. I am thinking (including the yesteryear gray color) I used about 56 oz total. But like I said, I forgot to keep track after a while. 🙂
Love the finished product!! I noticed the doors a different, usually where glass would go. What was done here? I’m thinking of doing something similar. You feedback would be wonderful!!
Hi Monique, I painted the inside of the hutch a grey color and then I removed the glass for the photos to avoid glare, but otherwise I left them the same. The lattice piece I painted white and it can be removed. Hope that helps!
I love It! I recently did my own DIY hutch makeover as well! Check it out and let me know what you think! http://imperfectlychic.com/?p=312
I love how your hutch turned out. Doesn’t the white make such a difference?
