There’s nothing quite as satisfying as taking an old, forgotten piece of furniture and making it look and function like brand new. It’s amazing what a little bit of paint and TLC can do!
One of my favorite furniture makeovers of my own is my little blue china hutch:
Amazingly, my little hutch caught the eye of the folks over at Hometalk and they asked me to curate a clipboard of my favorite hutch projects. What fun!
Hometalk, in case you’re not familiar, is a great place to find furniture makeovers, DIY projects, home and garden resources, and other people who love the subject of home. You can share ideas and connect with others to help you solve some of your home dilemmas or just browse for inspiration.
It was easy to find several great furniture pieces that inspired me:
You can see all 19 makeovers on my Hometalk clipboard, but today I’m giving you a taste of what you’ll find on my board for “Favorite Things Friday.”
First up, is this ingenious hutch created from an old postal letter cabinet. The old letter cubbies were removed and embellishments and shelves were added to turn it into this beautiful china hutch.
Amazing, right? You can read more about its transformation here.
This one also caught my eye because it looks just like the hutch in my mom’s kitchen. Only hers is not painted but stained. My mom isn’t in to painting furniture like I am, but I can’t help think how cute hers would look like this!
And, there’s this re-do. Here’s the before:
Here’s the after:
How can you not get excited about a large hutch with good bones that says, “FREE” on it?!
Don’t you think the former owner is kicking themselves for giving the hutch away?

Finally, I love this cute little cabinet. It could store so many things! I love furniture that’s both pretty and practical.
And, thank you to my friends at Hometalk for asking me to curate such a fun board!
