Hutch Makeover Reveal

7.03.2019

This poor hutch has had many coats of color over the past few years and now it wears another new color. It has actually gone through two changes in the past couple of weeks and I shared the first change on Instagram, but not on the blog. I have been cooped up in the house after having three more skin cancer surgeries so I decided to paint since I couldn't go out and sweat in the yard. 

The first thing that happened to cause me to repaint the hutch was I changed the wall color in here. Yep, I've been a painting fool lately.
I will share the room reveal soon, but first the hutch makeover.


The walls are a blue with gray undertones and at first I only painted the inside of the hutch in pink with the outside still being black.

Here is how it looked when I added the pink, but when I decided to paint the hutch blue I changed the inside to green so it wouldn't look like a baby's nursery.

For this new look I used Magnolia Home paint color Winter Solstice in eggshell for the blue and and I painted one coat of Boxwood Green Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint on the inside and then painted Annie Sloan Chateau Gray over the green so both greens are showing.

To style the hutch for summer I added some large shells, coral, a coastal painting, books, and more.

The painting is vintage and it was on the mantel in the great room. The big old conch shell is a recent find in the same antique mall that I found the the painting for my bedroom. In the photo below you can see the amazing texture it has and patina. The lady at the checkout counter said you like the old ones don't you? I also had a large old starfish that I'll share another time. 

I've had this large clam shell for years. It was found in an antique shop while out of town.

In fact all the coral and most of the larger shells are from antique shops.

As I painted the blue on it was too bright and too nursery room looking so I toned it down with some dark wax mixed with a bit of hemp oil and then took most of it back off and it settled in the grooves.

I like this better than the black for this bedroom.

Here is a peek of the new duvet that pulls this room together.


Have a fabulous fourth and the new look in this room is coming soon!

  1. I think this might be my favorite yet for this hutch. Kind of glam but not overly so. I am sorry you have had the skin cancer surgeries. Drop me a line and let me know how you are doing. Hubby had several of those and I have had one (so far). ugh!
    Have a wonderful 4th! xo Diana

  2. I love this makeover on the hutch. Love the color combination. The wax looks great in the grooves.

    My husband has to be careful with sun too. He has Irish skin and gets checked yearly. His mom has had some bad spots taken off. Scary.

  5. Oooh a room with colored walls! We used to have a bathroom painted a very pale blue, but all our rooms are now a pale neutral. I saw the black/pink cabinet on your instagram and loved it. But I agree, it's not right for the room. Hope you have a fun and happy 4th! Cookout and fireworks for us!

  10. Kim, at first I thought it was an ad when I scrolled down and saw the duvet! �� I have the exact same one! It is great to see it used in another color scheme. My wall color is Valspar Smoked Oyster. It looks great with the colors in the duvet. I didn't choose the wall color and the whole house is this color. I love your style so I'm happy that we share this choice in duvet!

  11. Hi Kim,
    I am glad you are catching the skin cancer early and I hope they are getting all the margins. I can remember as a teen putting on that baby oil and burning in the sun. That is when skin cancer starts is in our teens. So far I have been checked and nothing thank God. I am fair like you so we are the more likely candidates. Wishing you the best with your results. Happy 4th.

  12. The hutch looks beautiful! I’ve been reading your blog for several years now, but I absolutely do not remember seeing this hutch painted black until this picture. I remember when you painted it for the dining room. Was it black in that room also? Looks like you’v Got it in your bedroom now. I can’t wait to see the entire reveal. I live north of Nashville & I had a sister that lived down in Franklin,TN for about 45 years. I’d visit her & go to PD’s in the old part of Franklin. Have you ever been there? They used to have a lot of house hold decor that is similar to your taste. I knew your son used to live there & can’t remember if he is still there or not so I thought you might have shopped at PD’s.

    1. The hutch was painted black while in the dining room and then I got the new antique hutch from France so we moved the hutch to one of the guest bedrooms a couple of years ago. It stayed black until now and I have shared it in that room many times.
      Love Franklin and yes, I have shopped there. My son now lives in Florida.

  15. I really like this look. And, do you move the hutch to paint it or paint in place? I have a very large piece in my bedroom that needs to be painted or something. Thanks, Liz

    1. You need to lightly sand off the slick finish or use a liquid deglosser and you will need to prime mahogany as it tends to keep bleeding pink through paint.
