Newly Painted Hutch

Well, here it is, my newly painted red hutch. It looks so much better to me in person than in these pictures. Reds come out weird in pics sometimes. I like how it turned out, but will like it better when I get some pewter to display in it. The last two pictures are after I decided to go back and sand some edges. I like it better after doing that. I also plan on buying these Presidential portraits to hang in this room. It will look very Colonial~ just the way I like it!

Oh, my gosh, Janae, I just love it. I have an antique cupboard in my living room & would love to paint it red but I'm kinda chicken. It turned out awesome & I can't wait to see it decorated.

Gee...that was fast! lol
Okay, what type of paint did you use, and did you just paint it right there in your diningroom? The reason I ask is I'd like to paint mine but it is so heavey to move, did you have to sand first?
Just love it!

Rondell, I used Valspar satin finish from Lowes. The red is called chocolate and the tan is called barnwood. I think a semi flat would be good to. I moved it out to my garage (by myself :-))and just roughed up the finish with my hand sander. Then two coats of paint and some black dry brush distressing and that was it.
