Hutch Before and After

I love a good furniture upcycle so when my bestie brought me this $20 hutch from goodwill, I was excited!

So it looked like someone had tried spray painting them like an off white and then they gave up? ?‍♀️ Nothing that a little sanding couldn’t fix!


Here’s just a basic round sander, I used like a 200 grit on it.
I love this sander!


Like most things, it looks much worse before it looks better!

After sanding, I moved on to priming.

I know that I’ve mentioned this before, but I swear by Zinsser Primer!


I use this primer on everything and I love it! I also use a paint sprayer outside because it makes my life way easier and it gets done way faster!


Once it’s primed and dry, you can start painting! I used this paint. I did this part by hand because I wanted to make sure that it was able to stick to the primer(wood laminate can be tricky).

I used sponge brushes for soft and easy strokes.

While that was drying, I took the broken off backing and stapled fabric to the back:

After it’s stapled, I trimmed the fabric. Then I nailed it to the back of the hutch.


Now don’t hate me but I forgot to take a picture of the last step! You do a few coats of water based polyacrylic. I use my sprayer for this top coat because I don’t like the brush lines it leaves if you use a paint brush.


Here it is in my garage! I also bought new handles for the cupboard and I love them! ?

Now these aren’t usually my colors but they matched her house perfectly!

Here it is all done in her house! I can’t wait to see how she decorated it!

Here it is before and after. Isn’t it such a difference?! I had so much fun doing it and I love seeing this awesome piece in her house whenever I come over!

So what do you think? Any questions? Redoing furniture is so much fun! Thank you for stopping by! Love you all!
