I recently finished a fun hutch makeover for my daughter-in-law! I started with her 70's-80's era hutch made of nice sturdy wood...but which definitely had a dated look,
and a finish that had seen better days.
I chose three DecoArt Americana products~
starting with Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint in Carbon...
After painting, I sealed the interior, where it would get a lot of storage use, with Americana Decor Light Satin Varnish. The exterior, I sealed with Americana Decor Creme Wax, and buffed with a soft rag.
I love the soft, protective finish the wax provides as it bonds with the paint.
I didn't distress this piece, as she wanted a more modern look, and I left the original hardware untouched, as it has a wonderful patina.
The hutch turned out beautifully and soon will be decorated for fall!
I am a blogger for DecoArt, and they provided some product used in the project.
All opinions are my own.
Until next time...have a wonderful fall weekend!
