Feeling Hutch-tastic!!!

Hey everybody! I can't believe it's Wednesday already! Lots of hutch progress happened at casa de Schutz yesterday! This is actually Step 1, 2, & 3 of the process... Here is a little glimpse of what you will be seeing finished tomorrow!
Here is what I used for the project:
1. a quart of Orange Behr paint from Home Depot (the color was Birds of Paradise)
2. a can of white spray paint
3. One large cardboard box (as straight & uncreased as possible)
4. One paint roller
5. One (leftover) stencil
6. 1 box cutter & measuring tape

Step 1 is cutting the cardboard to help me make a flat surface to "install" inside the back panel of the shelves because my shelves are paneling & I also did not want to permanently alter them. Here is what I covered up with cardboard. The grooves would have made it too difficult to paint a pattern on to.

Here is the cardboard I cut to fit inside the shelves after I measured them out exactly with a tape measure.

Step 2 was to take each piece of cardboard & roll the Orange paint on it. I applied two light coats as not to bubble up the cardboard. BTW you can totally use MDF instead of cardboard if you want something a little more sturdy. I just cut the cost with the cardboard ;.)

Step 3 was to take the stencil & use the white spray paint to create the pattern on top of the orange background....Here it is up closer...BTW this was the first time the Hubs & I ever sprayed a stencil instead of hand painting it & it turned out so FAB & was a huge time saver ;.)

These aren't the best pictures to really show how awesome it looks in person. But tomorrow I will have it finished & loaded up and staged with all of my books & trinkets ;.)
My favorite part is how it plays off of the rug in the living room, I chose to believe they are kindred spirits ;.) See ya tomorrow!


  1. Can you tell me where you purchased the stencil? I'm looking for a similar one. Thanks!


  2. Hey Veronica! I got that stencil at Hobby lobby (with a coupon of course) ;.) and as of yesterday they still carry it! Good luck, hope this helps & happy stenciling.
