This Midcentury 60s style hutch, was a free find on Craigslist! - I had a vision immediately for it! It was the perfect size for my dishes and cups in our new place we’re moving into.

Free Craigslist Hutch! - UPCYCLE
I was looking specifically for a hutch to makeover! I had only done 2 before this, and one was more of a buffet than a hutch, but as soon as I saw this I knew what I wanted to do with it! It was FREE - so I paid the guy to deliver it to my house since it was a few towns beside us, and a few hours later it was mine 😍
since the hutch itself was going to be painted, it only needed a rough sand. So I used my 150 grit sanding block from homdepot and roughed it up.
I used zinsser shellac based primer X1 coat
I used Country Chics crinoline & soire for this piece!
Crinoline white for the frame & shelves and soire for the middle and doors
- sand doors
- prime doors
- paint doors
I used dollaramas faux wood stickers for the backsplash! Save paint and super cheap and easy to use!
My brother in law created my exact vision for these doors I wanted! He used FIR WOOD, wood glue, table saw.
I stained the doors before he added the chicken wire
Miniwax provincial and special walnut stain
He used Tim snips and a staple gun for the chicken wire
My husband added a support beam which I then painted, and we assembled the hinges and added the doors to the hutch. Along with knobs.
Top coat everything!! Varathanes waterbase top coat
