A traditional hutch is a fantastic multi-faceted storage solution for living spaces, offering plenty of space for crockery, cutlery, glasses or other household items. However, sometimes they can date a room, or don’t match your current aesthetic.
Luckily, they are incredibly easy to upcycle! With a few everyday D.I.Y. items and a day or two, you can transform your hutch into a fantastic furnishing that elevates your space, satisfying both form and function.
It’s best to move your hutch to an outdoor space before starting this project – this way, you won’t have to worry about dust or paint hitting spots it shouldn’t! If this isn’t possible, make sure to cover all surrounding surfaces with a or plastic covering to make cleaning up easier.
Now it’s time to sand back the hutch to remove the shine. Place on your safety gear (glasses, mask and ear coverings). For larger and flatter areas, you can use the power sander.
For the more detailed areas, use a sanding block. Once you’re finished, wipe off excess dust with a micofibre cloth.
