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.

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.
