painting a hutch
Hello All! I want to take an old dark pine hutch and lighten it up. What I would really like to do is paint it ala MacKenzie Childs. I'm not sure what kind of paint to use and then if I would need to put some sort of protective finish on it. I'm not really crazy about something with a lot of sheen. This piece will be going in the large center hallway of a 1780 colonial to lighten up the place. I'm also thinking of adding some interesting paper to some of the drawer fronts or door fronts. I've never moge poged (sp!) anything. Would love to hear some feedback from some experienced people. Thanks!
