Making over an antique hutch that was a dull white and gray with C2 Cadeau Paint in a Matte Finish.

Antique Blue Hutch Painting Makeover

I luv the antique blue colors to warm up the home for spring. C2 Cadeau's paint color was the perfect color for this old hutch and it looks so warm in this corner now.


Here is the antique hutch before I painted it the Cadeau Blue. To prep the hutch, I removed all the hardware and the glass door. It did not require any prep work like sanding or priming.

Testing the Color

I tested the paint out first before painting the entire hutch.

I applied two coats of the C2 Cadeau matte finish paint to the entire hutch.

I hand sanded around the details and the edges of the hutch to create a subtle vintage chippy look to this hutch.

Painting & Sanding

Here is a detail look at the glass door painted and sanded around the edges.

Inside Hutch

I painted the inside of the hutch with an Alabaster white high gloss. Simply because I had this white color on hand. I left some of the wood showing, as I luv the rustic look it adds to the hutch. I also put the glass door and hardware back onto the hutch.
