Craigslist Hutch Makeover With Chalk Paint

262,256 Views
I found this 1980's hutch on Craigslist and knew a fresh coat of chalk paint would be the best medicine for bringing her back to life! Using Annie Sloan's Old Ochre for the body and oil-rubbed bronze spray paint for the hardware, the hutch immediately became the focal point of our kitchen!
