Our ‘formal dining room’ needed some furniture to fill it, so I found this gem on Craigslist for $25!!!!!!!!

DIY Hutch Makeover Commence!

A personal goal I set for myself, well, for our home is to furnish the rest of it with Craigslist items or Goodwill purchases.

We moved from a smaller home to a home over double its size, so we have had a few rooms to fill.

You read right, TWENTY FIVE BIG ONES!!!

It even has a light in it … THAT WORKS!!!!!

I love how it turned out.  Just waiting to find just the right hardware to finish the look …

What do you think?

HOW DID I DO IT?

I removed the hardware and sanded the areas down a bit.

Then I spray painted the base coat … flat black.

Let it dry over night.

Got back to it and slapped some oops blue paint on there and rubbed random areas off with a damp paper towel to create an aged look

Then when that was all dry, I went back over it with a glaze/water/paint mixture to give it extra character {the glaze loves cracks and crevasses and I wanted to showcase those on this piece}.
