So there’s this pretty popular club nowadays. The “I Painted My Hutch White” Club. It’s easy to become a member. Step one, find a hutch. Step two, paint it white. Step three, print off your IPMHWC member nametag. Just kidding, there is no nametag. Not yet anyway.

So if you want to join the club, and you aren’t doing anything this weekend, you are now. Boom!

Weekend. Plans. Done. Here comes some inspiration:

Love the Greek feel to this one from Alyse at Sweetest Scraps

 Two become one from Lindsay at Country Girl Home. For some reason I keep invisioning this one with red handles. That would knock it right off the cuteness meter.

 Whitney from the Kenworthy’s got some help from her friend Rachelle to finish this bad boy. Looks so crisp and classy now!

 April at Frilly Frolic helped her mother (who has arthritis) redo this hutch from 1000 miles away! She was so proud of her Mama when she saw the final results, that she wanted to share it with the world!

 I’m loving this cool gray background on Better After reader Melise’s hutch.

And last one from Leah at Little Place Called Home Sweet Home who proves that chicken wire can be chic, and who I’m extra fond of just because her blog is playing my current favorite song.

Have a great weekend friends! As always, thank so much for reading this here blog, and for all your sweet comments and emails! Now go makeover something and send me the pictures!

    oh how i love your blog. when you’re not posting befores and afters here, do you stand in front of people and tell jokes?

    Amazing how a little paint will make anything pretty again!

    I love your blog! The better afters are always fantastic but it is your wonderfully witty prologue that keeps me smiling all day long! Thanks for everything you do. By the way, I am not yet a member of the IPMHWC. By the time I get to it, we will all be off onto another color.

    Funny timing with this post, because I literally JUST bought the cutest little wood hutch today from the thrift store and was thinking hmm…maybe I’ll paint it white. 🙂

    These paint jobs each look terrific, but after awhile they all begin to look alike or worse, they become so bland they are just boring.

    I sure would like to see some options for painting something other than just plain ole white!

    Am I the only one getting tired of all this white??? 🙂

    Very good timing on this post, I’m painting a hutch/china cabinet tomorrow… but as pretty as these are, it’s not going to be white. And it does involve chicken wire 🙂

    After seeing that chicken wire, I have to agree that chicken wire can be chic, and it is an inexpensive way to do something that would other wise use glass.

    True story: I’ve been on the prowl for a right sized china hutch for my kitchen . . . that I plan on painting white!

    that second one is my fave!

    I LOVE your blog!! And yes I am in the IPMHWC! And now want to paint about everything else in my house white cause it looks so great.

  11. February 26, 2011 / 8:12 PM

    Ah man, I painted mine BLACK… I guess I’ll just have to wait til there’s a club formed for people who prefer dark colors…. :o)

    I’m with Mellodee. I’d like to paint my 50’s style hutch turquoise or red. Love to see some options for people who want bright colors!
    It’s awesome to see though, that some of those really ugly 80’s hutch’s can be REALLY pretty with just some paint!

    I am on the prowl for a hutch. I love white, but by the time I get my hands on an inexpensive hutch, I’ll probably no longer want it white, but they all so clean and crisp.
    And I’m drawn to this blog because of your humor and wit. You make me laugh!

    i love these works, are perfect! kisses

    Lindsey- Thanks so much for posting my hutch. I LOVE all the others. For those of you that don’t love white there is always cream or grey and BLACK-you can’t go wrong with black.
