Dresser Hutch Makeover

4 Materials
1 Week
Old Dresser Hutch gets a makeover.
First I removed the mirrior, wooden panel, all hardware, and drawers. Since I used chalk paint, I didn't need to do any prepping or sanding. I gave it a good wipe down to remove any dirt.
I found this dresser hutch on my local sales app. for $80. I knew instantly what I wanted to do.
So then I painted away. It took about 3 coats of white chalk paint by Wavely. I don't know about you but painting is so therapeutic for me. Having 4 kiddos, I sure need something to relax me.
Once paint was dried, I then distressed all corners and in between the cracks and sealed it with clear wax from Waverly. I really love that rustic vintage farmhouse look and it was turning out just as I imagined.
All done. I replaced all hardware and chalked painted the wood panel behind the mirrior black. I also left 2 drawers out and made them into shelves. It definitely turned out better than I thought it would be. I debated wether to keep the piece for myself but I decided to resell. I paid $80 and resold for $275. Not to bad being that I had almost all my supplies on hand already. Now on to my next project.
