The color of the year affects all industrys, from fashion, decorating, even your nail polish.
My favorite pieces of furniture I painted this year have been turquoise.
2011 has a new color,
and I think I am in love again!

Now for the Hutch
Here she is beforecleaning and then a coat of Kilz water base primer.
The fun part - PAINT. I use the same technique as when I prime. I clean off the primed piece of any dust, with a dry paint brush, and then a tack cloth. I use a brush to put the paint on, and then a roller to make it smooth! Make sure you do a small section at a time! I count the sides as one section, and the top, I would do half of it - the long way! Make sense. . .
On this Hutch, I did not paint the inside. One reason is, it was in such great shape, I left well enough alone! Some pieces need a liitle sanding and primer and paint to make them usable. Not this piece.
Once again, I lightly go over the painted piece with a sand block. If you want a smooth finish, it's a must.
Then the dry brush to get the dust out of the crevices and a tack cloth
Ready for the next step - Stain!
