Soooo... Get ready for a big one!!! Remember this hutch? We bought it at an auction (click here to see the original post) for $25.00! It was one of the hottest days in Charlotte and almost everyone was gone when it was time to bid on the furniture. (Lucky us!) We debated for a long time about what color to paint this beauty.
We decided that red would be a fun color for a kitchen, so we went to Lowe's to pick out the perfect red. On the way to the paint chips we glanced over at the mis-tints (of course!) and there it was. The Perfect Red! In fact, The Perfect Tomato Red. And the best part?? It was only $5.00!!!
While Mr. Dump painted, I sanded (and sanded, and sanded) the top of the buffet. I wanted to stain it a dark color to break up the red.
I added a walnut stain from Minwax and applied Polycrylic when it was dry. Here is the fabulous after:
I forgot to take an "official" after picture before we took it into The Sleepy Poet! Please ignore the price tags that are hanging down on the top.
Also, check out the "Sold" tag on the blue enamel top table! Yippee!! To give you a little preview of what is coming in my next post, (I promise I'm going to write it within the next 7 days... NOT 70!) take a close look at this picture. You will see an incredible project next week! Thanks so much for sticking by me during this busy time.
