I picked up this china hutch on Craigslist for cheap. The picture below was the one listed on the Craigslist ad. It looked great. I thought I wouldn't have to paint it. When I picked it up however I realized how decieving the picture was. The finish was terrible, the painted chipping and a back leg broken. You can not see it in the picture but the back had large gold swirls painted on it. The indentions in the doors were also painted gold.
I ended up repairing the leg, spraying it black, and removing the gold grids in the glass doors.
And the After....
Love the crown moulding and the dental moulding across the top of the buffet in the above photo.
This piece took more time than I originally thought but it turned out gorgeous.
