Do you have a piece of furniture stashed away in your basement or garage that is too good to throw away, but you’re in a quandary as to what to do with it? It isn’t unusual to find a piece of furniture at a thrift store or flea market that has the storage you need but seems to be hopelessly outdated. Bev from flamingotoes walks us through the process she used to refinish a mid-century hutch she purchased.
Because Bev wanted a two-tone effect, she used chalk paint on only the front portion of the hutch. For the sides and trim, Bev used a Minwax poly finish in a cherry color. When she was finished, the hutch looked new, and the cherry wax highlighted all of the decorative trim on the piece.
Consider this treatment for any piece of furniture that has good bones and the potential for becoming a truly unique and beautiful addition to your home.
