Painted Furniture – A Rescued Hutch

Print Friendly

I found this hutch at the neighborhood Goodwill just asking to be rescued and given new life.

It was just sitting there for only $10! I couldn’t resist!

Step 1:

The first thing I did was to remove the glass doors in order to make the cabinet open and allow me to showcase other goodies.

Step 2:

Next, there was a hole in the back wall of the cabinet. I filled it with wood putty (I used Dry Dex Spackling with a putty knife) and covered the back with plywood using a staple gun.

Step 3:

Then the paint process began. I painted the inside and outside with American Paint Company’s Lincoln’s Hat.

The next part is one of my favorites!!!

Step 4:

DISTRESSING! American Paint Company’s paint is awesome because all you need is a damp washcloth to give you a clean, controlled distressed look.

I chose to cover the inside back piece, that had the repaired hole, with a heavy muslin fabric with beautiful stripes.

Step 1:

First, I sprayed the board in the places I wanted to lay down fabric and let it set so it got tacky, then smoothed the fabric down.

There are three adhesives that I use in order from best, better, and good: A1 Foam and Fabric Spray, Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Spray, and Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive.

Step 2:

I left enough overlap so when I stapled the back piece to the frame I got a secure fit.

Step 3:

Then I just trimmed the overhang.

Step 4:

I finished the paint job with American Paint Company’s Top Coat.

I used the top coat instead of the wax because it is easier to wipe down when cleaning.

Lastly, I added some new knobs, and waaahhlaa!
