Dreary Dining Hutch Painted to Perfection!

Hutch After - A Well Dressed Home










I‘m headed out the door to have another project photographed this morning, but because I’m quite possibly THE most impatient human being on the planet (just ask my husband!!), I have decided that I can’t wait to share a piece of this project with you…so I’m serving up a before & after of a dining hutch that we had refinished for the space.

I found the hutch at the ever fabulous Again & Again in the Dallas Design District. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the perfect fit for my client’s dining room.

















And here she is after a fresh coat of paint and a little accessory love.



































Bright white, Robin’s Egg Blue and a fantastic mix of metallics = perfection.

And don’t you just love the ikat printed plates?! If you’re lucky, you can find them at your local ZGallerie…on clearence!

    Oh, this is such a fabulous before and after! Thank goodness you’re so impatient : ) I always, always look forward to your posts! (Being a new mom, too, I want to thank you for taking the time to still blog. I can’t imagine wearing all the hats you do, but I am so inspired by your posts. Thank you!)

    Love this! Can you tell me what color paint you used? Also, what did you use on the knobs/pulls? They look like a different color than the original. Thank you.

    • We used white dove for the paint and left the hardware with the original finish…

    Fantastic! Great lines and your accesorizing is so inviting, not contrived. Please blog more. I need ideas on what to put on top of china cabinets and armoires. I don’t want fern. Ha

  • Wow, what a difference a coat of paint makes. Can’t wait for you to see the photographs I took of it, and the rest of the house, later today. Always enjoy working with you. Your designs are just gorgeous!

    Another gorgeous project!!! Can you share the brand and name of the robin’s egg blue paint? I’ve gotten some I thought would be perfect and it was far too green.

    Have a great Thanksgiving!!
