My husband bought this for me over 12 years ago and have always wanted to paint it This Hutch was so dark it had damage on the top from the previous owner overwatering plants . I was not
sure what color I wanted to use as I like lots of color., so I decided on an off white we had stored in the garage,I could esily paint it aging if I did not like the results"right" I distressed it by removing paint with a scrubby pad in the accent areas I wanted to bring out the scalloped design.

I have a hutch almost identical, I painted mine white also and removed the door and use it in
my bathroom for towels and I have baskets in side for extra storage! looks great :)
Total project was about $60.00. ($17.00 for the Primer, $20.00 for the Countertop Coating and $20.00 for the Polycrylic). I already owned the paint, but that was about $15.00 worth. I know they sell kits for this kindof thing (made by Gianni or Rustoleum), but I wanted to go with a different paint scheme. I got the original idea from a blog (creative Kristi's) Total process took about 3 days
These cabinets are about 30 years old but still look good I think. I have been throwing around the idea of painting them a off white colour. It is a hugh kitchen and would be a hugh
job. Or, I could just paint the walls... it is a peanut shell colour now. What colour do you think? Also, I was thinking maybe just change the hardware. Should I have a runner or area run under the table. Any other ideas to spruce up this space would be welcome. HELP PLEASE!!

I'm in middle of painting my cabinets white, they were same color as yours, and what a
difference, just brightened up my kitchen! Yes lots of work but in the end very worth it :)
