Farmhouse Hutch

Cozy White Farmhouse Hutch

I love hutches so much!! They just make me nostalgic and remind me of ‘grandma’s kitchen’ (even though my Grandma never actually lived on a farm in my lifetime! haha!). 

I attended a warehouse estate sale that is held locally once a month and actually found 3 great pieces – this gem of a hutch and 2 fabulous china cabinets.

This one, though, did have me a little worried at first!  See the before?  Wow that is some bright Coral!!

My immediate thought was to give it a much softer, traditional look, but I was really worried about the bright paint showing through that light of a color.  

But, I decided to chance it and took it home!

I first sprayed it white using my paint sprayer and  spray tent with white homemade chalk paint.  While I do love to use chalkpaint brands, such as Annie Sloan, for color, I find it much more cost efficient to make my own in bulk for whites and ivories.  

I used my Portable Spray Paint Booth – Airbrush Spray Paint Shelter Tent – DIY Hobby Painting Station“>Nordstrand Portable Sprayer Tent to do the job!! This was the best investment ever!!

Well I wasn’t overly thrilled with the white when I was finished with the first coat and thought that it needed a softer, more heirloom look, so I headed to Lowe’s in search of the perfect off-white.   I was so excited to find that there is a Cottage White – how perfect would that have been?!? 

But I chose the Cozy White instead. I liked to faint yellow tone that it had.   I use plain latex indoor flat paint in my chalkpaint recipe. See my post showing how I make the chalkpaint here!

I ended up doing one full coat and then one touch up coat in certain areas in the Cozy White chalkpaint and I love how it turned out!! 

Oops! Busted! LOL!

After 2 coats of Annie Sloan clear wax (3 on the top of the shelving) and 1 coat of Rethunk Junk Tough Top Sealer on the inside shelves for extra protection, I was in love!!  I immediately started decorating it!!  

I do like how it looks without the cabinet doors and the clear drawer pulls…

but I did finally opted for the oil rubbed bronze pulls and the doors on!  I just LOVE it – it is going to be so hard to let this one go!!

This is definitely one of my favorite projects to date! It was a good find and cleaned up real nice! 😉

Until next time,
