Hutch Transformation

In July 2010 I started talking about painting my hutch and last week I showed you proof that I was finally doing it.  You can see those posts here and here

My baskets arrived by UPS yesterday, but I ran out of daylight for pics.  So today I finally get to reveal my hutch transformation. 

I am so glad I looked past my fears and went for it.  I think it looks amazing.  My only concern is that it makes the rest of the kitchen cabinets scream for a makeover. 

Are you ready to see it?  Good, because I am sooooo ready to show you.


Don’t you just love those baskets?  I think they are the icing on the cake. I bought them at Target, however, they didn’t have enough so I had to order some online.  They were cheaper online because you get a discount the more you order.  The baskets fit perfectly and the color is just right.


They were already lined!  What a bonus. I think the lining helps lighten up the black hutch and it goes with the dishes. 

How about some before and after shots?

It was suggested by a reader that I remove the scrolly trim.  I have no carpenter skills and the trim is such a part of the hutch that I would have to rebuild most of it.  So it stayed and I think it looks just fine.

And a few more just because photos.

Oops a “moon” shot.  Smile



I might have some new plans for those red barstools.  Not sure yet. 



The little pig cutting board was made by my 81 yr old father in law when he was young.  It makes me smile.

I have another large painting project on my list for this year and I can’t wait until I have that one checked off my list too.

Do you have any painting projects you have been putting on hold?  Are you ready to take the plunge?  I hope my built in hutch inspires you to get painting.
