Two Teal Hutch Makeovers – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends!!

This is your lucky day!! I’m showing you not just one but TWO makeovers! If that’s not good news enough, both are teal hutch makeovers. I love nothing more than hutch makeovers and then you add my favorite color and it’s a win, win in my book!!

Here’s the first hutch before. It was really, really ugly when we bought it.
IMG_8432I looked at it for a while… then looked at it a little more. It was like the thing was slapping me in the face with it’s ugliness. Just not nice of it to do that to me! Then it came to me… barn board makes everything better so I would put that on the bottom. I didn’t like the trim work on the top either so we pulled that off. We painted the inside the color Silver Fox by Benjamin Moore (a light gray). The painted the outside with the color Tropical Teal by Benjamin Moore. I love distressed teal so of course that came next and then glazed it using Rustoleum’s Antiquing Glaze.

Here are the after pictures:

I wanted to keep it for my dining room, but agreed to put it up for sale for 1 month. If it sold, it wasn’t meant for me. If it didn’t this beauty was mine! Sadly for me, it sold! Good news for you, I have another teal hutch for sale now and it’s coming up next!

An unlikely couple was combined to make this hutch. We took this dresser and put a hutch top on it that went with another hutch we bought. When we bought the other hutch the bottom actually didn’t match it and it was too damaged for repair because it wasn’t solid wood. Out it went and in came this one (I don’t have a before picture of the top unfortunately).


This time we painted the whole thing with Benjamin Moore’s color Tropical Teal and heavily distressed it, then glazed it with Rustoleum’s antiquing glaze. If you want to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post.

One thought on “Two Teal Hutch Makeovers – Tuesday’s Treasures

  1. When we purchased our dining room table 25 plus years ago we didn’t purchase a buffet or hutch to go with it because we didn’t have a place for one. Well, now we do and since our table is showing its age as well, I have been looking for a hutch to redo at the same time that I redo the table. I have passed on a couple of possibilities simply because they had hideous doors (although not quite as bad as these, lol). I definitely need some behind closed door storage for a few functional but not display worthy pieces so simply removing them wasn’t an option. Being rather new to the world of DIY I never even thought of replacing them until I saw your post. You can rest assured that I will look at future finds with new eyes all thanks to you. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with others. It is very much appreciated!
