From the Designer: "I re-finished an outdated looking hutch and buffet with Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint. The project was super easy since I didn't have to sand and prep the wood before applying the paint. In no time at all I was able to transform a somewhat ugly piece of furniture into a stunning trendy farmhouse decor accent piece for my home. The paint was not difficult to work with and produced amazing results. I gave the hardware a new and unique look using Plaid Folk Art Painted Finished."

  • Rust-Oleum Chalked Protective Topcoat Matte Clear
  • Plaid Folk Art Painted Finishes Moss
  • Chalk Paint Brush
  • Scotch-Blue Painters Tape
  • Sand Paper
  • De-greaser soap

  1. Find a hutch and buffet to re-finish. I found mine on a buy and sell site for $100.

  2. Wipe down the whole piece with a clean cloth and a de-greaser cleaning solution.

  3. Remove doors and hardware.

  4. Use painting tape around the glass to protect it.

  5. Paint the hutch and buffet with the Chalked Paint and allow it to dry. Repeat with a second coat. (I did three coats in some areas but it wasn't necessary)

  6. Use sand paper to distress some areas on the hutch and buffet.

  7. Add a coat or two of varnish and allow it to dry.

  8. Paint the hardware with two coats of Plaid Folk Art Painted Finishes Moss, allowing it to dry between coats. Sand the hardware in some areas to distress it.

  9. Remove the tape from the glass and re-install the doors and hardware.
