Grey and White Hutch Makeover

Is it snowing where you are today? Even though it’s mid-March here in upstate New York, we’re enjoying yet ANOTHER snow storm today. It’s days like these that I wonder why I live in NY. Lol! On a much more positive note, getting snow is much less painful now that I don’t have to drive anywhere to work. For those of you who made it into work today, kudos to you. I hope no one is in yet so you’ve been able to take a quick break and enjoy today’s Tuesdays Treasures. :) For those of you who are home with the kiddos, I’m so happy you stopped by even with a chaotic house. Make time for snow angels, ok?? ;)

This week in our house, we checked out a school for the kids next year. It’s so sad to think that they are both old enough for school, but I’m trying to stay positive about change. If you know me at all, you’ll know change is not my best friend. ;) Although I’m almost always thankful for it. Our little Sweetie cried because we had to leave the open house. Lol! I take it they approve!

Ok, ok, on to the furniture. I know I’m rambling. Today’s makeover is truly one of a kind. I’ve never seen a hutch like it! 

The beastly thing before. 

I looked at this hutch for WAY too long in  my garage trying to think of how it could be beautiful. I’ve noticed some beautiful grey hutches in everything from designer magazines, to Martha Stewart lines, to Pinterest makeovers and that color seemed just right for this hutch.

The first thing that had to go was the hideous hardware and those awful brass things in the glass door. When was that ever a good idea and why?? I love the combo of grey and copper and went hunting on Home Depot’s website. I found the new knobs and pulls in a jiffy. On to the bottom right door. It was off, but definitely repairable, however instead of putting it back on, we decided to put in a custom wine rack. On the left side of the bottom half of the hutch, there is a drop down section that reveals a dry bar. That just seems to be a perfect fit for a wine rack (or in my case a sparkling cider rack… lol).

We went with a cream on the back of the hutch to lighten it up a bit. The grey we used is Benjamin Moore’s Anchor Grey 2126-30. After everything was painted, we distressed and sealed it. Are you ready for the after pictures?? I know I am!

I hope you like it as much as I do…  ;) Thanks for all of your support… this baby went crazy on facebook the other day.

  1. Is this a stain or paint??? and did you poly it after? Did you sand it down to the bare wood first?

    1. Hi Kate,
      It’s painted and yes, we poly’d after. Yes, we lightly sanded it before painting.

  2. Wonderful piece! What brand and color is this??

  3. This is my hutch! It’s in my kitchen right now, in original condition. I’m down state from you, poughkeepsie. I’ve been looking for ideas on how to make her great again, I love this furniture, so thanks for inspiration!

  4. Hi Sarah! Just now came upon your site and had a ‘Oh no, you didn’t ‘! Moment! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the before picture of the gray and cream hutch. Wow, you have a very good eye when it comes to rehabilitation. It’s fantastic! Want it bad, thanks for the inspiration, I’ll never look at a heap of wood the same! Onward thru the fog.

  5. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of
    unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content
    from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  6. It’s awesome in favor of me to have a web page,
    which is helpful in support of my know-how.
    thanks admin

  7. Do you know what the drop down deal and the box area was made for??? I have the same hutch but really curious what the hutch was really actually made for….
