GORGEOUS White Painted Christmas Hutch

There are no words to describe the satisfaction you get when you turn a decrepit, smell, scratched up old furniture and turn it into a gorgeous white painted Christmas hutch your family will enjoy for years to come!

White hutch

Here’s my beautiful hutch all decorated for Christmas! Spoiler Alert! It sold in three days for a ridiculous amount! I was so excited.

What I Started With

While I’m really excited how it turned out, you won’t believe how this looked when I first laid eyes on it! Well, you HAVE to see WHY. It was in such a shabby shape to begin with, but I insisted on giving it a chance!

Can you believe I only paid $30 for it?

Pathetic, right? And even more pathetic and gross when I puked figured out that it reeked of rat pee!!!
Ewww! (please don’t tell)

What I did to transform it into a beautiful Christmas hutch

The first thing I did was spray it down with a hose. After that, I kicked out ALL of the panels and shelves, only leaving a shell. Next I let it sit out in the heat and sun for about a week.

Here’s a closer look at the damage.

I then scrubbed the remaining pieces with TSP. The stuff works wonders. It gets the smell out, the grime out and anything yuck out!

I then replaced the all of the shelves in the cabinet and added new boards to the entire back of the dresser and hutch. What a difference!

I sanded and primed the entire piece with Zinzer Primer.

Then I sanded and re-stained the top with my favorite Minwax Dark Walnut.

I chose a white chalk like paint for the rest.

As mentioned before, the entire back has new birch boards – a major improvement!

Wow! Already looking fantastic:)

But my favorite extra touch is the distressing. Here’s a quick video on distressing furniture:
