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 love how this turned out!! My mother used to have some of those antique grinders when I was a kid (I think that's what they are?) I wish she still kept them!

    I absolutely love this look. I will be doing this with a roll top kitchen cabinet that my mom got when I was about 10 yrs. old. At that time my mom loved yellow so that is what color we painted it. That turned out to be my work station as I grew up

    Hi Michelle! First of all a big "Congrats" on your hard word earning your Masters!!!!
    I don't usually like panting over, and covering old beautiful wood. You did a remarkable job with this hutch!!! The distressed look is awesome. The new paint makes

    That is absolutely stunning. Just what I am searching for for my home. You do beautiful work!!!!

  • Mike Kilbourn

    Sorry, but why cover up that beautiful wood? Sand and re-stain and varnish it would be exquisite.

    • Michelle @ The Painted Hinge

      If this piece was completely hardwood, I would have been tempted to do that. But, a lot of this was thin wood veneer, and there's always a risk of sanding through it. And I just like painted furniture! :)
