Hutch- Before &After

Hey readers,

Today I have a special post. I finally finished repainting my hutch. I mentioned before on my organization post that I had started working on it and I am just now getting to enjoy it. It turned out to be a lot more work than I had originally thought. My husband really helped out though. I especially appreciate the help with sanding it. That part was NOT fun.

For the color, I chose Lemonade Slush by Better Homes and Gardens. At first I wanted something more golden yellow, but after really thinking it over I wanted a more neutral yellow in case I decided to change my kitchen colors. I do think I still want to paint the hardware, but I haven't decided which finish yet. And I removed the doors on the top permanently.

I would really love your feedback. I am certainly enjoying it now. Every time I go in the kitchen, my eye is drawn to it which is what I wanted. It houses all of my fancy dishes that we got from the wedding, so I want everyone coming in to notice them.

Also please ignore any mess in the pictures! :) Thanks. Sorry that the images aren't that great. Its a narrow kitchen so it was hard to get a good angle. Hope you enjoy!

A couple of inspiration photos too of course:





Now I'm working on my next DIY project: those chevron curtains!! Hopefully I can post about those soon :) How do you think my hutch turned out? Would you have painted it a different color? Do you have any yellow furniture? I would love to see it!
