When I picked this hutch up from a garage sale I was a little worried about what was living in it. It was caked with spider webs and years of dust, but details like that just can't be passed up!
And I am so glad I brought this beauty home. Look how nice she cleaned up.
I spray most of my furniture with a professional paint sprayer, but my spray booth only has 6 foot ceiling, so this monster of a piece wouldn't fit.
I used General Finishes Seagull Grey Milk Paint. I like to hand paint with milk paint, the brush stokes are minimal and it sands to a smooth easier than latex.
I used General Finishes Antique While on the details to really make them pop.
I don't usually love water based top coats, as I don't think they are as durable. However, the lady at the store talked me into General Finishes Polyurethane Water Based Top Coat......and I am converted! It paints on so nicely leaving minimal brush marks and my children even put it to test by rubbing their sticky popsicle covered hands all over it, and to my surprise it wiped up so nicely! The popsicle juice bubbled up nicely on the top and didn't sink into the paint at all. Leave it to my children to test something out for us!
This beautiful piece is FOR SALE!
