Remember when I shared my kitchen cabinets and said I had a fun project happening on the opposite wall that I couldn’t show? Well here it is! My coral kitchen hutch! The fact that I love color isn’t a secret, even to my readers. I mean I really really love color. So painting my kitchen hutch a coral color shouldn’t be a surprise by now.
Coral is a really hard color to pick out, especially if you are turning into a chalky finish like paint and adding plaster of paris. If I was being honest I would say I should have gone more orange because of the plaster of paris but it all works out. These pictures make it look a little pink but it’s more of a salmon color. I used Vintage Coral from the Behr Marquee collection!
I bought this hutch off of Craigslist with two dressers, all for $30! I could have taken more furniture but we couldn’t fit more in the TWO trucks we brought for the haul. When buying off of Craigslist be sure to bring men with you. Not just to lift the haul but for your safety! I’m all for women being able to do what men do but this trip was definitely a bit on the creepy side. You just don’t know who you are talking to and in this case it was two men who lived out in the middle of no where. I could have been toast!

At first we used it for storage in the kitchen. I put snacks, and drink mixes, and even tupperware in here and used it as a make-shift pantry! Now I have it in my dining room and it showcases all of my fun finds. Just love that!
At first I wanted to find a bright colored knob for the glass doors but a simple white porcelain looked much better. I picked these up at Hobby Lobby. They have a great selection of vintage door knobs!
Can you believe I scored this furniture find for $30? I know I can’t! I love furnishing my home without breaking the bank! You can find my 7 tips for decorating your home on a budget here.
