I went out on a limb with this hutch, usually when I am painting something this big to sell I play it safe and go really neutral but I was tired of neutral. I am glad I took the chance I love the color and the cream stripes add so much charm to an already beautiful piece.
I don’t have a name for this paint color, as I mixed a few colors together to create it! The paint I was going to originally use was a bit too bright so I added some gray and cream until I got this shade, just perfect for a hutch!
It has been lightly distressed and glazed with a dark brown oil based glaze to help all those fun details POP!
After everything was painted teal it needed some personality so I added the stripes in the back. How fun are they!!
This hutch is for sale! For all the details please see my Furniture For Sale tab at the top of the page!
