I recently bought this hutch at my local Salvation Army. It had only been there for two days but I was able to talk the manager into taking 25% off the price (they usually won't give a discount unless the item has been there for at least a week) so I paid only $30.
I have plans to do something bold à la Barb from Knack Studios:
As much as I love the orange that is not what I want to do with this piece. I am thinking teal, specifically "Woodlawn Charm". I first saw it here. It is the perfect teal. Not too light or too dark more green than blue. I love it.
My adoration was further cemented when I saw this kitchen.
I am also considering an avocado-y green color. There was a house for sale near me that I would have bought in a heart beat if I had the money. There was much to love about this house; full brick, one mile from Liam's school, sunroom, completely renovated and much more but what really hooked me was the kitchen:
I can't have that green kitchen but I could paint my hutch a similar color.
My dining room is a little small though. I am afraid that having a piece of furniture painted in such a bold color would be too much for the space. Should I play it safe & boring and paint it white? Also the wall color in the dining room will not be staying that dark olive green color. The whole room is getting a bit of a make-over, albeit a slow one.
What would you do?
