Hutch Rescue! DIY Furniture

5 Materials
15 Hours
This is the biggest transformation to date for flop or not! It took a bit more detail and patience. But it was worth it! Love love love how it turned out πŸ‘Œβ€οΈ Check out my website at my Instagram for more of my projects!
Can you believe this is the shape I got this in?! This hutch was a 30$ rescue from Letgo ! Plus a delivery fee to my door. The power in paint and hard work πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ I feel very satisfied with the turnout.
  • sand sand sand SAND
  • Wipe down
  • lay out materials.
  • use shellac zinsser primer and prime the living day lights out of your piece so you get no bleed through. With a cheap foam roller that you will toss after
  • fill Wagner spray gun with premier (Canadian tire) eggshell white. (Great paint!!)
  • Spray 3 coats of white paint.
  • sand the doors!
  • stain doors with whatever choice of stain you like. This was a mixture of a white washed oak and sun bleach oak.
  • Use poly acrylic miniwax top coat X2 coats.
  • attach old hardware and assemble!
This is an example of having to re same down and apply more primer if you don’t prime the entire thing too the first time.
Before the hardware and doors went on!!

    First of all, it is a great looking piece of furniture. One question - are the drawer pulls original to the piece? They look like they belong to the style

    I have the same drawer pulls on my bedroom furniture. They are turned the other way in order to keep from scratching the wood. It looks like yours are upside down. Just curious. did a fabulous job on this piece. Lovely..Judy

    Ok. I just want to say that you have turned furniture refinishing into an art form. I’m always inspired by furniture upgrades, but this is stunning. Beautiful job. Thank you for sharing.
