Updated Hutch- Final Reveal!

Drum roll please…

Updated Hutch in Sherwin Williams Denim

I’ve been waiting for this moment for weeks…the hutch I’ve been updating is finally FINISHED!  (If you missed the previews see them here and here.)  This one has been a lot of work, and at moments I wondered if I had perhaps finally bitten off more than I could chew!  I’m pretty sure that this project is the most time-consuming I’ve completed to date, with the exception of our kitchen cabinets.

That being said, I’m so glad that I took the time to get this piece RIGHT.  I love the outcome and know that it will make a gorgeous statement piece that it was intended to be.

Just as a refresher, here are some pictures of this hutch in it’s original state.  I found it on the online auction website Everything But the House (check it out at www.ebth.com), placed a bid, and won!  I really loved the shape and lines of this piece from the get-go, and knew with a pop of color it could become a show-stopper piece!

After several days weeks of sanding, priming, and painting (I used Sherwin Williams Denim on the exterior and Pure White on the interior), here is the finished product…

 I also used my favorite Rustoluem Oil Rubbed Bronze on the hardware after an EPIC fail attempt at gold Rub N Buff.  (If anyone out there has any advice on this product, please send it my way!  I had high hopes- but couldn’t get it to work right!)  Here is my super technical method for applying spray paint.  Not really, but it works really well!  We had to buy new screws because the old were all worn out, and couldn’t find any to match the updated hardware.  So, I improvised by spraying the matching spray paint in a bowl and using a small kids’ paintbrush to hit the screws with the right color.    Public service announcement- this stuff must be highly toxic based on the way it ate away this styrofoam bowl!

So there you have it…the hutch is complete.  I’d love to hear your thoughts on this piece!  What is your favorite part?  Where would you place this piece in your house and how would you style it?

    You did a fantastic job, it is beautiful. Just have a hint for you in painting pulls and screws. Take a piece of stiff cardboard and push your screws thru that. Depending on the cardboard you might have to use something to start the hole. But just stick them thru. Nothing gets painted except the top of the screw that shows.

      Thanks for this reminder, Sandra!! I usually use your technique! This time, my husband put the hutch back together before I had finished the hardware and I was too lazy to take it back apart!
