Three years ago - I made the ultimate find when I scored this cool HUTCH over at Goodwill for 70.00 and I shared the whole make-over on this post
this is what the original hutch looked like
It was a funky 1970's brown
totally needed a lot of work but what a steal
here was the finished pieced - I painted it a light gray with soft blue highlights and added a cream color on the inside
and here she was all put together with all my "STUFF" - not bad right, for a thrift store find?
Fast forward to this past weekend -- since I posted these photos (3 years ago) - we have gotten our kitchen renovated. New floors, new cabinets and new wall paint. So I felt it was time to change up our Hutch to match our new kitchen. It only took three years to decide to mess with perfection -
So this past weekend I did it - it went fast because here in Southern California it was 100' hot - so it dried really quick.
Here she is - looking dapper and FRESH
Yes I chose a white - not off white, or creamy white but solid WHITE and can you see there up close
Notice the change up in what I put into the hutch (much better looking - for sure)
Painted the entire inside white and
sanded the edges to give it that shabby rustic look - our cabinets in the kitchen are white and the walls are gray and the floors are gray wooden panels - so I think the white hutch helps you eye follow around the whole kitchen.
I will have to take a panoramic photo of the whole kitchen so you can see the whole thing put together!
Not only was this hutch a great find, it was also a great price at 70.00 and now I have had it for 3 years and its gone thru 2 changes in color and a complete over haul for my kitchen.
It also helped me purge the "stuff" I really didn't need inside the hutch - notice all the turquoise, white & red accents - kept it cohesive and un-cluttered!!!
Hope you like it and remember there is nothing embarrassing about shopping at thrift stores and you never know when you will stumble upon a gem in the rough :-)
