J&Mo Design + a Hutch Reno | Sponsored Post

I'm not much for DIYing these days. I want to be Joanna Gaines, but really, I don't have her budget or her time. Work, kids, husbands, responsibility and crap get in the way of playing real life JoJo.

This project, however, I can do. I can take 2 days of feeding my kids Lunchables and fruit snacks with Paw Patrol on repeat to get this kind of thing done.

Here's the funny thing: now that I love my kitchen, we're moving.

Ain't that the way.

Now, if Annie Sloan chalk paint did not exist, this would never have happened. I definitely don't have the time to sit and sand a gigantic hutch down to it's raw wood. This only happened because of blessed Annie Sloan.

This hutch was gifted to me by my brother-in-law. I loved it, but the color was too dark for our kitchen. An easy $70 later and I had paint and wax and 2 whole days to work my magic.

The easiest part was painting. I took my Annie Sloan Paris Grey and did two coats on all surfaces. Waxing took longer, but once I figured out a wax on/wax off technique, she was perfect. All-in-all, this project took about 2 days to complete. I removed the glass doors to make it more open and look more farmhousey, and it is now my favorite place in the house.

The most perfect Welcome sign now sits front and center as people walk into our kitchen. It's handmade, and quite well-made. Clean lines, beautiful wood frame, and it's the perfect touch to welcoming people into our home. You need one. You do. I'm so glad I chose J&Mo Design for this sign because the colors could not be more perfect. And Melanie couldn't have been more wonderful to work with. Thank you for letting me brag on your signs and your beautiful work, Melanie!
