Updating an old china hutch

I had to remove the inside wood pieces in order to paint around the door and the insert. You know how we DIY’ers roll with the creativity and stuff….. Rub’n Buff is a wax metallic finish that can be used on sooo many surfaces to change the finish.😉 RELATED: Power Tools 101: What to Buy and How to Use Them Then I painted the wooden insert. But an even better solution on how to fix bleed-through on painted furniture: use Kilz oil-based primer to seal in the “old” stain that will bleed through. But this is what is recommended by a lot of DIYers. For example, if you’re doing a china cabinet makeover and you’ve got ugly handles or pulls, a little Rub n’ Buff can totally make them look news.And this piece passed all the RULES, so it was fair game!I love trying new furniture paints (click here to check out my review of the 12 most popular furniture paints) because there are so many of them now and it’s hard to choose what works and what doesn’t.Since I first started doing Beyond paint reviews, they have been expanding like crazy.

Lastly, I repurposed a drafting table into an eat-in kitchen table using their Blue.I couldn’t nail down the word I wanted to use to describe the consistency of Beyond Paint until I was nearly done with the china cabinet makeover. With Beyond Paint, the coverage was similar to Annie Sloan, though.Even with Annie Sloan, two coats are usually required for full, even coverage.And lastly, this is a patio table that I painted using this brand of paint.One of the projects we did while in New Orleans visiting my niece, was to paint this huge china cabinet that she bought on Craigslist.Her table and chairs are staying a natural wood color, but we decided to change the china cabinet to a nice off white with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White. We opted not to distress and age this piece too much, but you can do what you are comfortable with on painting furniture and making them over.
