If you have been a follower of Everyday Edits you know I am passionate about my furniture. I got a lot love when I published the story behind our dining room table. And, this is hands down our most popular piece of furniture. But, today is about the painted hutch in our living room. The painted hutch is a story about redemption and finding one’s place in a space. It was a lesson in patience and process.
Yes, I am talking about the painted hutch that found its way in a brownstone-ish home in the suburbs of Denver.
What did you think I was talking about?
Today is about the ongoing transformation of the painted hutch in our living room. There is a collective eye roll from my family right about now. Honestly, I do not think anyone in my family noticed the living room hutch had gone from the original finish (black), to a creamy white and settled on a half creamy white and Kendall Charcoal gray combo.
I loved the Kendall Charcoal grey on the exterior and kept the inside a creamy white. But when it came to the fun part of staging the hutch, the accessories got lost.
I don’t have the photo of the combo paint job because that was when my Nikon had a complete camera breakdown. But the light gray walls and the white interior gives you an idea at the bland hutch.
So with a 1/2 gallon of paint in the hall closet and a new camera on order, I finished my vision for the painted hutch 3.0. In about an hour I painted the glass shelves and the interior of the hutch to match the Kendall Charcoal on the exterior. I grabbed a stack of white dishes to give me an idea of the potential in my newly painted hutch.
It was love a first stack.
Here is a quick look at the before an after:
I love this color! I painted my front door the same color too. It gives the hutch warmth against the expansive wall behind it.
