    I love this!! I actually own the say exact china hutch, but my husband's grandmother gave it to us, so I would feel a little guilty painting it, darn it, I love the way yours turned out….maybe some day…..

    I love this so much! You did an awesome job… it looks perfect! And the paper your hubby chose if perfect as well! All summer I have been on the hunt for a piece just like yours to paint. I've been to garage sales, rummage sales, and checking Craigslist like a fanatic (literally like every 30 minutes some days) and still… no luck. Someday… I know I'll have one too. And when I do, I'll make sure I primer first! Thanks for the tip!

    Oh, it is amazing. I just recently painted my brown china a cabinet white, I agree, a lot of work and 4 coats later. I laid down plastic and did it in the house, no way could I handle the heat!! What a perfect fit for the space, and the "Wallpaper" is wonderful!!!

    Great job, Sweat and all. Looks like it was worth it. But great tip on using a sprayer next time. I painted cabinets with a brush and a Sprayer would have been a life saver.
