My brother-in-law frequently comes across discarded furniture.  The other day he found this hutch and asked if we would like it.  It was pretty darn ugly so hubby and I decided to give it a makeover.  Smiley

We removed some of the decorative wood, painted it, and frosted the glass.  I think it came out pretty awesome!

Great rehab - this is a vast improvement. I guess I should have considered that ugly stuff from my mother's house and redone it like this.

We did very little prep on this piece.  After taking off the ugly wood decorations we filled some nail holes and sanded the excess putty off.  Then, where we cut off that wavy wood decoration, we sanded the edges to make them smooth. 

As for the color, we used Krylon spray paint, believe it or not.  It works like a charm on wood and it dried extremely fast.  For the glass we used a glass frost spray.  Super easy!

How many cans of spray paint did it take to finish this project?  It looks great!
