Hutch Makeover

Here is the other part of my mom's kitchen redo that I showed you yesterday.  This wall is on the other side of the kitchen that you didn't see.

Here is the BEFORE...                                                    and here is the AFTER...         

The power of paint amazes me every time!  I think it looks so much more modern. She painted the wall a rusty red with a satin finish and gave the hutch a makeover as well. 

She used tintable primer instead of paint like what she used on her counter tops. Then she used some brown antiquing gel over the whole thing (It was Delta brand and it's just the cheap stuff found at craft stores in the little bottles).  To apply the antiquing gel she wiped some on with a sponge and then wiped it off until you have the coverage you want.

She replaced the hardware with some of the same drawer pulls as her cabinets.  Like before, they used to be brass.  She spray painted them a flat black color and then added some of the same brown antiquing gel on top that she used for the hutch.  This gave it the look of oil rubbed bronze.  She decided to leave off one of the doors to give the hutch  a different look and then she put in some wicker baskets that she found and spray painted brown.  I don't think I have ever have thought about spray painting baskets but why couldn't you?  They look great!

There you have it.  Didn't she do a great job?  I will be linking to some of these places.

Thanks so much for your sweet comment! I can't believe she was two months early! I'm sure that was scary, but so glad she is good now. And I cannot believe the faux paint job on your mom's cabinets, incredible! Following you now!

It looks awesome! Totally updated.

Do you know why she uses tintable primer instead of paint? I'm just curious if I start using it too. LOL

What a terrific makeover. Your hutch is one of my favorites I have ever seen. Great job. I love the basket area where you removed the door.
