We love DIY Painted furniture!

Painted furniture – one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to make an old/tired/ugly piece of furniture new and beautiful again!

Two weeks ago, I posted photos of my new dining room sideboard and the super-cheap, super-easy DIY “artwork” I hung above it. This replaced our old Ikea hutch, which had moved with us from our apartment and was supposed to be only temporary in our new dining room. But alas, it ended up being there for close to three years until we (mostly me) made a decision and had our new, custom sideboard designed and built.

So what became of the old Ikea hutch!?! After years together, I couldn’t bear to have it banished to the end of the driveway for the garbage collectors to drag away. Although the wood stain had it looking tired and dated, it was still functional and surely could be put to use. And, as luck would have it, a close friend of mine was moving into a new apartment right as we were looking to give the hutch the boot.

Once primed and painted, the hutch had a totally different look and fits perfectly in her new place.
