Painting the Hutch8:50:00 PM
The problem with changing one thing in a room
is that it leads to more...
The hutch was green, it used to go very nicely with the green wallpaper that hung in my kitchen.
(I dare to mention that this hutch was once white and I painted it green to begin with)
But once that wallpaper came down...
(well you know the story...)
I started out by giving it about 3 coats of
Behr white paint with primer.
(the primer part was very important)
(Are you noticing something strange?)
When I was finished I scraped all the windows with a razor blade to remove any paint that
might be is on them. I might mention that the windows go all the way around both sides of the hutch.
You may notice that I left the inside of the hutch green.
No, I wasn't lazy...
(though I will admit, I did paint it with everything inside)
...the fact is that almost all the dishes inside the hutch are white so I left the green to highlight the white.
I gave all the flat surfaces 2 coats of
Polycrylic Protective Finish by Minwax
to protect the surfaces from scratches.
And I think it looks about 300% better
Don't you think so?
