Plaid Patterned Hutch

KariAnne from the Handmade Home

Big, bold and beautiful colors. See how KariAnne from Thistlewood Farms brought the 2022 FrogTape® Design Trend "Shine" to life with this DIY patterned hutch.

Supplies Needed

A white hutch painted with blue, green, red and orange stripes.

Step 1

Lightly sand the entire hutch with 220 grit sandpaper and then apply one coat of primer. After the primer dries, paint several coats of the base coat of paint. KariAnne used Extra White SW 7006.

Step 2

Next, plan out your pattern. KariAnne wanted the stripes to be uneven — some larger stripes and some smaller stripes instead of unified stripes.

Step 3

After the initial pattern and stripes are planned out, vertically tape off the rest of the piece. For this project, the stripes start on the back, top portion of the hutch and they continue down the front of the drawers and the paneled doors. Now it's time to paint! KariAnne used the same colors from the Shine Design Trend -

Final Steps

Peel off the tape to reveal the crisp paint lines. Once dry, seal the entire piece with a coat of clear polyurethane — and you're all set!
