UPCYCLED Hutch Makeover
This secondhand hutch could be easily overlooked. At a price of only $45 we saw the potential in this one!
We took the top portion off to make it easier to work with and began sanding it down with a palm sander.
We removed the inside shelves and tried a few methods of sanding on them. Above, we tried a soda blaster. That ended up being too hard to work with and we switched to a chemical stripper.
Next, the lower half of the hutch was painted light gray while leaving the top portion wood-toned.
The upper half was treated the same way. The upper shelves were also left wood-toned and all those areas were treated with a cerusing wax for a whitewashed finish.
The two drawer pulls were changed for a more updated look.
You'd never know this pretty hutch was only $45!
