My boyfriend and I love finding vintage pieces of furniture and other antiques for our home.
We have found a couple of thrift, consignment and antique stores we frequent every week or so for my crafty fix.
I saw this adorable kitchen hutch posted on our thrift stores fb page. I had to go see it, hopefully it was still there.
I had a vision for it to become my new kitchen hutch for our glassware.


I ran to the local Home Depot where I looked at paint sample colors for about 5 minutes (yes, that quick) and found the 2 colors I was going to re-paint this with.
I fell in love with Behr's Botanical Tint (main color) and Behr's Pastel Jade (lighter color).


Two coats of Botanical Tint paint dried over night. I then found these very pretty Fleur-de-lis stencils. Stenciling it took some time. The first time was botched. The stencil moved and it was a hot mess. After re-sanding the area and painted anothe coat, I tried again real slow with a small paint brush. All 3 stencils took 45 minutes, but it was worth it. They came out flawless. I then re-attached doors and screwed in the lovely 8 beautiful glass hexagon knobs, found also at Home Depot. All in all about 5 hours for this makeover. Mostly dry time for paint. I completed it in 3-4 days. I'm very pleased with how it came out.


Thanks for looking. This was a fun find and makeover. Can't wait till I get my next piece to work on.   Grin

... so many ideas ... so little time ... We are about to MOVE!! (crafting for my family's new crib)

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?
