White Farmhouse Hoosier Cabinet

Tuesday, March 10, 2020

Hello Friends!

Today I am going to be sharing something with you that I never do, hardly ever.  A WHITE FARMHOUSE PIECE!

I'm not gonna lie I HATE painting things white.  Okay maybe not hate, but I definitely don't like it.  I just never have luck with it and no matter how much I prime, I STILL get bleed through!

But, I still did it.  I pushed through and created this beauty to share with ya'll!


(Some of the products used in this post were so kindly sent to me by the team over at Country Chic Paint, but all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!)


So I picked up this little kitchen hutch/ hoosier cabinet and I love it.  It is so fun and unique from what I usually find & I just love the wood on top!

I gave it a good clean and sanded the top part down to raw wood because I was going to be staining it.  I took off all of the hardware and took of the doors so they were easier to paint. I filled the holes from the hardware because I wanted to move them down so they were centered on the drawers!

I also did some little repairs with some wood glue and we were already ready to prime!

I used my BIN Primer to block any stain or bleed through.  I did 3 coats of primer over the whole thing!  I let that dry for a full day before getting into painting.  While the primer did dry, I grabbed my stain in Espresso and stained the top.  I did about 4 coats of stain, letting it ry completely in between each coat, to reach the deep color I wanted!

The next day, I grabbed my Country Chic Paint in the color Simplicity and got started!  I did 3 coats of this gorgeous bright white!

After painting was done, I applied my top coat.  I ran out of my favorite Clear Coat from Country Chic so I used my second favorite water based satin clear coat from Varathane!  I used my CCP painting sponge to apply the top coat with a streak free finish!

I noticed some spots of bleed through after the first coat of top coat so I sprayed on some clear shellac, let it dry, did another coat of white paint, and got back to sealing.  Painting things white is never easy, but I won't lie, it is almost ALWAYS worth that gorgeous clean finish!

I freshened up the inside of the drawers with Country Chic's Hemp Oil!  This is a super easy way to moisturize dry wood and give it a fresh look!

I put my hardware that I spray painted a satin black back on and we were done! 

 Such a quick and simple makeover, but I love it!  I love the wood grain of the planked wood on top so much!

This piece has already sold and is on the way to it's new home :)
