Kitchen Hutch Makeover

Recently I was lucky enough to score an old kitchen hutch from one of my lovely sisters in law.  I had been looking out for one for a little while now to keep my sewing supplies and display some sewing machines I have been collecting. 


As you can see it was in need of a little makeover.


After a little sand (which hubby kindly did for me) I gave it a few coats of paint, added some cute handles and it was ready to fill.
 

For those wondering I painted the hutch with Dulux Poolside in half strength (the outside photo shows the colour at its best).  I painted the back and interior of the hutch white so that the items displayed could really shine. 


I added some golfball resin handles to add a bit of glam (they took me a whole day searching in town to find - problems of living in a small 'city').

This kitchen hutch is my new favourite piece of furniture so I have put it in the hallway to admire as I walk past.  It gives such a lovely pop of colour and brightens my day.

What do you think?  Do you prefer it before or after the new coat of paint?  What colour would you have choosen to paint it?

Gorgeous, I'm really drawn to blue at the moment, but the hutch would be cute in a summery yellow or a gorgeous apple green as well. Now that I've seen how wonderfully a revamped hutch can look I will be keeping my eyes peeled in my thrifting adventures!
