Blue Painted Cabinet and Hutch Before and After

This again is one of my favorite things to rehab. One of those 1970’s Ethan Allen two-piece furniture sets. I love how well these really clean up.  They paint so well because the lines and design are timeless. This blue painted cabinet and hutch before and after are such a great transformation!

It was that weird shade of yellow and had teeny knobs that made no sense. The top of the hutch had these funky wood spindles I removed and spackled over.  Those were the things that really made it feel it’s age.

To update the top of the hutch part, I added a wood applique to  spice it up. I love the extra detail it adds.

After properly prepping the furniture, I painted base coat on  It got a coat of BM Stratton Blue (it’s an awesome robin’s egg blue color with just a hint of turquoise.).

Then a glaze with  BM Tudor Brown which is the yummiest shade of chocolate brown ever (wait till I show you my friend’s bathroom we did…coming soon!)

It gave it just the hint of age. I’ve found you have to be careful when glazing blues with browns because they can end up muddy looking. I deliver it to the client on Saturday, but I am sure she won’t mind me giving you a sneak peek!
