When my husband's greatgrandmother passed away in October 2009, we inherited a large amount of furniture. One of my favorite treasures was this beautiful hutch that held all of her china and silver pieces. I love the space, the interior light, the lines and the ornate pieces of this china cabinet. But I didn't love the color.
So this week I decided to change that. I've been slowly remodeling our foyer/living room/dining room area for a while now, and this hutch was one of the biggest frogs I had to eat. (That phrase is from this book on productivity that I am currently reading- and love!)
I spray painted the inside turquoise. Aqua by Rustoleum (from Home Depot) to be exact. I mentioned on my facebook page that I spray painted indoors, and while that wasn't the smartest thing I've ever done, I didn't do any permanent damage. I got a lot of dust on the floors (fixed by mopping) and the house smelled of paint (fixed by opening a window), but other than that, no harm done!
I did move it to the garage (and have many bruises to show for that move!) with my husband's help for the next part. It was there that I was able to spray paint the outside Antique White by Rustoleum. I read this helpful post about spray paint and was instantly sold. It covered well and is quite smooth. I also priimed it prior to the Antique White with Rustoleum 2x Primer.
I love the finished product! The blue background really makes the dishes pop and I love how the outside is all one color, unlike before when it was mauve and green.
