Farmhouse China Hutch

China hutch painted in Graphite and Country Grey chalk paint.

I found this china hutch at a local thrift store. I gave it a classic farmhouse style finish in a Graphite and Country Grey with hints of dark wax. I worked on the hutch indoors during the recent deep freeze, and will post another time about managing a large project indoors. In the meantime, please enjoy the finished photos.

Country Grey is a wonderful neutral color. Not too much grey, almost a "greige", with an undertone of green. It's difficult to capture the true color of cabinet interiors, so I shot the next photos with props in white and red for a better comparison.

It was old and a bit grungy, but its new finish is clean and stylish.

  1. I love it painted black and distressed. Totally transforms and updates this piece in an expensive looking hutch. It also inspired me for another project I've been waffling about! Pinned

    1. Thanks so much Marie! I'm happy to hear it inspired you, and I appreciate your kind words.
