Green & Stenciled Hutch Makeover

I found this hutch at one of my favorite thrift stores. The drawers were ornate (I’m a sucker for ornate furniture) and I saw the potential it had to be a real stunner with a makeover so I brought it home with me and got to work.

Best peel and stick wallpaper!

Feeling inspired? If you don't have the patience to stencil, we love this peel and stick wallpaper that Amazon reviewers swear by!

I loved the hardware so I decided it just needed a good polishing and I decided on a green chalk paint for the entire piece and to stencil the back!

I used Brasso and steel wool to polish up the brass hardware. It’s a huge difference and I knew with the painted green hutch it would add just the right touch.

The back of this hutch was just stapled on. I find it easiest to work with by removing it. This way I can paint the inside of the hutch easier and it will be easier to stencil with it off too.

I painted the entire back in a white chalk paint. I found this stencil at Hobby Lobby.

So here is the back entirely stenciled. Doesn’t it look like wallpaper? It isn’t! Ha.

What a difference! Love it so much now.

    What is the difference between chalk paint and trim paint/cabinet paint? I was advised to use the oil based cabinet paint for this type of painting so it flows on smoothly.
