Roundup: 10 Hutch/China Cabinet Makeovers

Roundup: 10 Hutch/China Cabinet Makeovers

This morning on Craigslist in my city, there are 489 listings for china cabinets and a whopping 1351 listings for hutches. Does that mean china cabinets and hutches have fallen out of favor? Not with these clever makeover artists! Take a look and then you tell us...have china cabinets and hutches fallen out of favor with you??

Serena spotted this impressive cabinet at her local thrift store for a measly $40. (Take that Craigslisters!) Now, before you purists out there excoriate her for painting such a gorgeous piece of furniture, take a breath. Life's too short and you have better things to do.

The wood tones might be a memory, but the color Serena chose is reminiscent of the piece's era. Click here to see the makeover in its entirety.

Not sure what to say about this one. Vanilla?

Well, there's nothing vanilla about it now! And, yes, those are zebras you're seeing in there.

Not only did Liz make over this impressively large hutch, she made over its function as well.

Jennifer's "after" looks like it could have come straight out of a Pottery Barn catalog:

Okay, technically Thalita made over a wall unit of the office/entertainment variety. But how cute is it now as a kitchen hutch??

If you thought Jessi was brave to paint her corner cabinet orange, take a look at this makeover from Jennifer. She thought it "sad" before. But...it just needed a little color to make it happy again.

Now it's practically giddy with green!

@Serena--Thank you for catching that! (All fixed.) And you're welcome! :)

Thanks for including my china cabinet! I'd love if you'd include a link to the post so that people can get the full tutorial. This is awesome for you to share! Thank you!

These are some of the best makeovers I have ever seen. I have a whopping big china cabinet that isn't really my style (it was my price) and have been afraid to do anything to it. You've given me ideas and encouragement to give it a try.  These are beautiful!
