Updating an old china hutch - signs of dating a jerk
actually I am almost always scrambling nowadays, moving on.Okay for the instructions, I say show not tell mostly because I don’t have a ton of time to type out instructions, so this post is really not a tutorial.
You can see below someone started to re-do these already. and after a little ASCP in Old White with a bit of dark wax…..(and a bunch of primer spray on that one chair to cover the black that kept bleeding through. ) I recovered (and re-cushioned) the chairs with a really cute, colorful fabric I found. I put them in the corner of another room where they would be “safe”…they were, until I stepped on the corner of them) Five moves, no breakage, and I manage to do it while remodeling. Be sure to wipe away all of the dust before applying the poly! For the cabinet and table base, I used Sherwin Williams paint and primer. I put a coat of Adhesion Primer on first then put a coat of paint on.

And truthfully, I didn’t want to spend anywhere near what a new set would cost.

In the end I just couldn’t stand the huge brown monstrosity anymore so I thought we should give it a quick update for the mean time…(this is pretty much how all of our projects begin by the way! In the picture below we were starting to take it apart for the “quick update” We took the doors off, and I was just going to brush it with paint. I applied Minwax Pre-Stain Wood Conditionerbefore applying any stain to help keep the stain more even. I sanded the top down to the bare wood…nice and smooth…It is a laminate so I didnt’ want it to chip and I bought an enamel of some sort…( I will try to find the brand, I can’t remember it off the top of my head) IT WAS AWFUL!But I think that sometimes when we see how someone did a project it helps give us the courage to try new things we might not have thought of before. it is likely you will have to adapt what we are doing if you try it.
