Hello friends and happy June! I’m back today to share with you another makeover that I added to my kitchen, and it is one of my favorites! One reason I wanted to start this blog was to share with you fun ways to bring old and tired pieces back to life. They deserve a second chance. You have to look passed the ugly and see the beauty in pieces. It’s pretty amazing what a vision and a little paint can do.
Let’s first start with the space. I LOVE hutches, especially in kitchens, so I was pretty bummed when we moved in and I saw that we had no room for one in our eating area. I mean, I need a place to display all my junk! I found an old and ugly top hutch at a yard sale for $25 and when I say ugly this is what I mean…
SEE! It was way passed it’s glory days. Now, let’s get to the vision part. I had a vision to hang a hutch on the wall. That would allow me to have a hutch but still have room for my kitchen table and chairs. So, here is what I needed to make the project come to life.
- Top Hutch
- Chicken wire (roll from Tractor Supply)
- Staple Gun for chicken wire
- New hardware (knobs are from Hobby Lobby)
- Chalk paint (Pure White by Annie Sloan)
- Wood for shelf (I got Home Depot to cut me a piece of wood that would act as a shelf at the bottom)
I started painting it with Annie Sloan’s Pure White Chalk Paint. After it was painted, I put a clear wax on it. I was not a fan of the glass so I bought a roll of chicken wire from Tractor Supply. I believe it was around $20 for a very large roll. I cut the chicken wire to fit the doors and stapled them onto the back of the doors. I then decided it needed a shelf at the bottom to give it a finished look. I went to HomeDepot and had them cut a piece of wood to fit the bottom of the hutch. I painted it to match the rest of the hutch. Finally, I replaced the hardware with knobs I found at Hobby Lobby. They have my favorite selection of knobs and hardware. The final step was hanging it. That was a pain but we got it done. I think it turned out even better than my vision.
It added so much depth and character to my kitchen. I was so thrilled how it turned out!
Here are a few more ways I have decorated it over the passed few months.
So, now I have a pretty place to display my dishes and decor!! It was a win win! I got my hutch and all it took was a little bit of vision! This whole project cost me about $50. Yassss!! I love it when I can add some beauty, reuse a piece of old furniture, and save money!
I hope you enjoyed with little makeover as much as I did. I would be happy to answer any of your questions. Thank you so much for dropping by!
