Well, I painted my kitchen hutch red and didn't like it at all. I'm sure I could have gone to the store and gotten a better red and it may have turned out o.k., but I decided to go a different route and paint it with some apple green paint I had. I painted and then aged it with some glaze and am really happy with it now. The color looks much better in person than in these pictures. Now comes the fun part - decorating it!
