My friend Samantha purchased this gorgeous stained hutch off of Craigslist.

But, she got it home and felt like it looked like a piece in her Grandmother’s house.So, we painted it black and rubbed back the edges and turned it into a gorgeous black china cabinet!

Samantha painted the inside in a gold metallic. It was perfect with her wallpaper.

It’s definitely not Grandma’s hutch now.

Look at those great lines.

Samantha gets the “Hostess with the Mostest Award” for the year. She surprised us by serving us hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, coffee and bagels before we ever painted. WITH PRETTY SILVERWARE AND PLATES.

Dude….I felt fancy. Even in my paint clothes.

Thanks, Samantha. Hope you love the black china cabinet.
