This was the biggest transformation to date!
I would say refinishing a hutch can be one of the easiest, yet most detail orienting piece for furniture flipping! Removing hardware, cleaning hardware, locating hardware, matching up holes, re drilling new holes, priming all nooks and crannies to a T so bleed through does not happen once applying the colour or top coats. Something with one of these just happened to go a bit sideways with this piece.
This piece is for a special friend, I hope it homes all her succulents and plants in the future, giving it that boho feel it deserves.
Plants, Plants, and more Plants, especially Eucalyptus! You can buy fresh eucalyptus from SAVE on FOODS, for like 5$, dry it and us it for all your staging needs.
Can you believe this is the shape I got this in?! This hutch was a 30$ rescue from Letgo ! Plus a delivery fee to my door. The power in paint and hard work
- sand sand sand SAND
- Wipe down
- lay out materials
- use shellac zinsser primer and prime the living day lights out of your piece so you get no bleed through. With a cheap foam roller that you will toss after.
- fill Wagner spray gun with premier (Canadian tire) eggshell white. (Great paint!!)
- Spray 3 coats of white paint.
- sand the doors!
- stain doors with whatever choice of stain you like. This was a mixture of a white washed oak and sun bleach oak.
- Use poly acrylic miniwax top coat X2 coats.
- attach old hardware and assemble!
