Old White & Duck Egg How To Use Chalk Paint® 1920's Hutch

Happy Fourth Of July

This Hutch can be purchased at our New Chestnut Hill Location

See Below how it was Recreated.
 this 1920's hutch from the store I purchased to give it a Chalk Paint™ face lift. 

The hardest decision for me was whether to paint over the beautiful inlay or leave it exposed. Unfortunately, the color pallet didn't lend itself to the deep wood tones of the inlay and paint I did. :( 

I chose Old White for the body and Duck Egg (gotta love that Duck Egg) for the inside and the accents. 

I used my beautiful Medium Annie Sloan brush - it makes the process even that much faster. 

Messy as I am, I used my beloved Frog Tape to cover the glass edges. A razor blade also works to remove dried paint from glass.

After two coats of Old White to the body, I touched up the detailed edges with Duck Egg, as well as painting the inside with two coats. Finishing up with clear wax throughout, then a quick distressing.

I promise to do a smooth, modern finish soon but I just LOOOVVVEEEEE me some shabby chic. This  shows how easy and simple it can be to relove something with the miracle of Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan

  1. I know this was a year ago, but I can't help myself from commenting. I thought the chalk one was the before and you restored it to its originally beauty. Such a shame that wonderful finish was ruined. Poor taste!
