Today we are featuring a lovely hutch makeover. Our customer, Amy from Michigan, used paint and Nottingham Damask from Chic Shelf Paper for this furniture flip.

Read below for all of the details.

“I line every drawer in the furniture I paint, the devil is in the details and your paper makes a wonderful finishing touch. I love to see people open a drawer and see that pop of color!”  — Amy S

Hutch Makeover with Nottingham Damask contact paper by Chic Shelf Paper

In Amy’s words:

I found the wall hutch at a garage sale for $2. Thats right 2 bucks!

The original finish was an old ugly dark wood. It had a huge crack on the back of the hutch, so I knew I could not paint it because the crack would show.  I also wanted a subtle design on the back so Chic Shelf Paper was the perfect solution. This piece was screaming for Nottingham Damask.

I cleaned up the piece, cause it was filthy. I painted the hutch with  Annie Sloan French Linen chalk paint and painted the drawers in Annie Sloan Old White.

I placed the paper on the back after I measured twice and ordered it to Cut-to-Size. I also lined the drawers with Nottingham Damask for an extra pop. I lightly distressed it with sandpaper and put a coat of wax on for protection.

The hardware came from another garage sale. There was an old dresser that was in horrible shape. It had 6 drawers but 3 of the drawers were missing its hardware. I bought the dresser for the hardware alone. Cost of dresser was $5.

I gave this hutch to my sister as a house-warming present and she loves it! The best part is no one else has it! She uses it to display some black and white pictures, and some other odds and ends.

I love it seeing it at her house!


Amy, we are so impressed with this lovely makeover!
