My $20 Hutch Makeover!

            I bought this china hutch a couple of weeks ago, really didn't need it since I had one, a huge one mind you, but I've always wanted to make over one and for the price of this beauty, I could afford to give a try! I'm not sure how old it is, but from the dark green stain on some parts, I'm guessing the 70's? I've also learned it's called a stepback cupboard but to me, it will always be my  $20 hutch but add the primer $ 24, hardware spray paint $1 and hutch paint $10 all adds to $55 but it's priceless to me! And the best part, no sanding!! Primer is a magical thing!! I love the way it looks against the red wall, and it makes the dining room look bigger!   I'm so happy with it that I sold my old monster hutch! The earnings from that will fund the living room makeover which is a must now since making over this sideback cupboard, so stayed tuned! And don't be shy or pass up a deal on a old piece of furniture, for little effort and money you can transform it into a new piece!


  1. Oh my what a wonderful job you did...Can't wait to see your next project...Have a wonderful day..Lisa

  2. WOW Sue -- youi've done a WONDERFUL job!! LOVE it against that red wall :)


  3. That looks great! I love the way it looks in your dining room. Congrats on a job well done! Now I'm looking forward to seeing the living room:).

  4. Wow that really looks wonderful! I have a hutch in my breakfast room that looks like your before...been wanting to paint it for years. Maybe I'll do that this spring. Warm hugs, Esther

  5. Absolutely fabulous!!!!!

  6. Sweet and what a steal. You did a great job. It does look really good against the Red Wall. Everything looks good with a little red behind it. Blessings!

  7. Wow, Sue, it looks amazing :)

  8. That came out so awesome. I love the style of the hutch. I have to do that to my little hutch. I love the creams so much lately but black would go better with what I have around. I was thinking about starting to change things around but that would take a while. Thanks for sharing, this is inspiring!

  9. Love it! Great Job! :)

  10. I love it! I have been toying with the idea of painting our hutch but I can't decide on a color.. Mostly because if I paint that then I have to paint the shelves and the kitchen cabinets and the ... Total domino affect!
