Plaid Patterned Hutch

Big, bold and beautiful colors. See how KariAnne from Thistlewood Farms breathed new life into an old hutch with this DIY paint project.

Red, blue and yellow painted hutch project

Supplies Needed

  • White Hutch with shelves. The back is taped off with strips of green FrogTape Multi-Surface Painter's Tape.

    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. For this DIY paint project, KariAnne used Extra White SW 7006.

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

  • Red, green, blue, orange, and yellow painted hutch. the bottom doors are taped off with green FrogTape Multi-Surface Painter's Tape.

    Step 2

    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 following paint colors:

  • Blue and green section of a hutch with a green piece of FrogTape getting peeled off, revealing a crisp white line dividing the blue and green.


    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!
