Farmhouse Hutch Chalk Paint Makeover

Hey there, friends! I finally finished my Master’s degree (yay!) and now I can get on some of the projects that have been sitting on the back burner for way too long.
I knew exactly which project piece I wanted to start with! It was time for a farmhouse hutch makeover!
This is how the hutch looked before. It was built in the 1930’s and it is a solid, well put together piece. It has a lot of detail on the doors which I really like, but what really attracted me to it is the open shelves, which I think work better for displaying mixed decor.
The hutch had some water damage on the top, so I sanded it out with a hand sander. It is veneer, so I was careful not to sand too much so as not to sand it all the way through it.
After I was done sanding, I took all the hardware off and removed the drawers and doors. I always put all my hardware in a lidded jar so none of it disappears, which tends to happen a lot because we have cats.
The paint goes on smoothly and covers well. I left the first coat dry overnight and then applied a second coat, which again I allowed it to dry overnight.
The next morning I was ready to apply the glaze.Glaze tends to try quickly, so I worked in small sections by applying the glaze and wiping off the excess with a damp cloth. I allowed the glaze to dry overnight.
The next day I lightly distressed the hutch using 150 grit sandpaper. I then applied the Natural Wax with a wax brush and buffed it out with a dry lint-free cloth, then allowed the wax to dry overnight.
Painting this hutch was a lot of work, but it was well worth the time and effort!
I had a lot of fun decorating it will all my flea market finds. :)

    Very nicely done. Inspiration for us all, I am glad you chose to share such a work of art, and I do mean work. But it is something that will remain with me when I find that perfect piece.
