Chalk Painted Hutch

Welcome back, my lovelies! It’s been a while hasn’t it? I’ve missed you all terribly and now it’s time to get back to work.

Firstly, I want to send a HUGE shout out to David from That Moment In for designing the new logo. If you knew how picky I was and how many drafts David went through you would wonder why he still talks to me at all. But it looks incredible and all his hard work is very much appreciated!

Also, just a reminder for all the movie fans out there, my Friday Night Movie Recommendations have moved over to That Moment In so keep posted there. There’s tons of other stuff going on there as well; check out this post for more details.  You can still read my past movie reviews and recommendations here too. So many changes! I love it! Can’t wait to see what this year has in store.

Now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the post that’s kicking off the much anticipated revamp of The Creative Fox Den. I’ve been saving this one for just such an occasion because it’s pretty amazing. Can you believe the transformation that a little paint can make? I love it. Couldn’t be happier with the end result.

I went back to the Fusion paint for this one. Check out my comparison between Fusion and Rustoleum’s Chalked here. I still like the Fusion better, even though it’s more expensive. I have another brand of chalk paint that I will be trying soon so keep posted for that. I find that the colours are really rich for Fusion and the coverage is a lot better.

I actually did the first coat in Chalked and then had to do the second coat in Fusion because I want this to match the table and chairs in the dining room and the Chalked was way too stark of a white. I did use the Chalked for the grey inside the hutch and it was a pretty good match to the table top.

Overall, though it turned out great! Again, there’s no prep work required. Make sure that the surface is clean obviously but otherwise, you don’t need to sand or scuff the surface, you just need to paint. It’s glorious. That being said, it’s tricky to write a how to because it really is almost too simple:

  1. Apply two coats.
  2. Make sure you get in all the nook and crannies.
  3. Marvel at the beauty.
