I’ve mentioned this hutch before, and quite honestly didn’t think I’d get it painted very quickly. Partly because I couldn’t decide on a color which holds me back from buying paint. Also, it just wasn’t high on my project list. Then I heard an ad on the radio that Ace Hardware was giving away a free quart of paint to help advertise their new brand ‘Kensington and Clark’, so I stopped by to get paint for C1’s room, but then found an “oops paint” for C1’s room, and it was too late to tell the guy I wanted a different color, so I got my free pint in yellow. I also had some green at home that we bought when we were painting our home, and debated between the two. Hubby is particular about his green, so I went with yellow for the hutch.
It took two coats, and I had to paint during C1’s naps since he wanted to ‘help’, and I couldn’t let him.
I’m pleased with the outcome and with the lighter color, it helps our dining room feel open and not like there is a big piece of furniture in the way. It’s also nice to have all of my party type items in one spot nice and organized.
