You already saw this sad little dresser in a past post. but here is is again..
before...
Here is a hutch that I got last summer at DI for $10. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, other than paint it WHITE..mmmmm white! What to put it on??? I didn't know either untill I got this dresser, that was the perfect legnth.

                                                                              before...

    And this is the finnished product fresh, clean, bright and happy! Isn't it cute!
                                                                                after...
I took out the fuzzy gold glass(not pictured)-yes gold & fuzzy like a hampster. Replaced it with chicken wire. so much better :)

  7. I love it! You inspire me to do the same with two pieces I have to make a hutch for my little girls room. I think I'll do pale pink on the back!

  19. Question- was this a laminate peace or wood that you were able to sand down?? I would love to do this, but I keep running into laminate hutches and I wasn't sure if painting it white would work! Thanks for the info. It's gorgeous!

  20. Love your website. You create such beautifulness.... is that even a word? Ok... I just wanted to know what are your white go to paints? and what type of primer do you use? I have a small china cabinet that is now black and I would like to brighten it up with white. I would also like to replace the glass with chicken wire but where to buy chicken wire and how do you install it? I also would like to do something different to the back of the cabinet but the shelves aren't removable... any ideas?
