China Hutch Makeover

I’ve been slowly revamping our dining room over the past few months and recently found this solid wood hutch on Kijiji which fit perfectly in the empty space beside our kitchen.

It’ll act as storage for dinnerware, random party supplies and board games that I have scattered around the house, but the best part is…. it lights up!

I picked up a can of Pine Scent by Behr and then found these cute hand-painted ceramic knobs to replace the existing wooden hardware.

I won’t lie, this took forever to paint! Even though I was using a  good quality paint and primer it still took 4 coats before I was satisfied with the coverage. I also used a de-glosser before I started so that the paint would adhere better.

But it was totally worth it :) I absolutely love how it turned out and it definitely makes a statement when you turn the corner into the dining room.

My most recent obsession has been collecting blue and white china, so once I have a large enough collection I plan to display them in the hutch and throughout the dining room. I’ll have more pics of the room once I repaint the walls… green on green is not the final look!

  2. Wow you did an amazing job in revamping this hutch, I totally love it!! I have a China cabinet by Broyhill that I was supposed to paint but was not able to, so I offered it to my sister cause I need the space. Now that I see how yours turned out, I’m regretting it 😔😢. I love the color green you used

    Thanks for the idea! i decided my apartment was too dark in the winter and all of my furniture was too dark, so seeing your article, i decided to paint my china cabinet and bookcases. fantastic! for me the painting went really quick! i used Valspar Cabinet Paint, it’s a paint and primer in one. my bookcases were black, painted them a light brown, i painted my china cabinet a light mustard yellow, each took about 3-4 coats, dried really fast. covers really well. also what helped, lady at hardware store recommend the Whizz mini foam paint rollers. they spread the paint really well & are easy to use. now i am itching to paint something else! thanks again for the inspiration!

    1. I would love to see pictures of them! Love mustard yellow too :) Thanks for commenting!

  4. Love the new, updated look AND the beautiful green color! The knobs are fresh and SO pretty, too. You look like you did a wonderful job covering and painting.

    1. Thank you Margarite! I’m in love with the knobs :)

    Hi Jolie,
    Your latest painting jobs are beautiful, love the new TV stand, so classy. I have a huge hutch and 2 large matching book cases and have been wanting to paint them for a couple years now. Somewhat scared and reluctant. I love so many colors, I can’t decide which one to choose. I do like your green hutch and was thinking of painting the trimming and shelves a bright yellow, my hubby’s yellow Chevy Camaro convertible as my inspiration!!! I also have my Mom and Daddy’s drop leaf dining table, which is pine, my favorite wood, and four ladder back, with very heavy raffia seats. Would you kindly recommend some color choices, please. My living rm is off white with one wall painted a beautiful orange/red.
