Blended Grey Painted China Cabinet

Megan from Lubbly Jubbly Furniture used one of our new Lustrum Collection colors, Cut a Rug to create this blended grey look on her china cabinet!

Hello everyone!
I knew I wanted to paint a hutch as soon as I received the colour, Cut a Rug.  I started by sanding down the top surface of the bottom hutch, and then used Ebony stain to stain the wood.
Once I had the hutch sanded and cleaned, I took out the glass shelving and panels and got priming. I did two coats of primer and I painted about 2-3 coats of paint.
I used my spray bottle of water to spray onto the paint where I wanted darker shading and I used Rocky Mountain. I used my Country Chic Paint brush to apply the paint and blend in the colours. Once the pant was dry I sealed it with Country Chic Paint’s Clear Coat which I found very easy to apply and durable. You can use a sponge or brush to apply it.
For the back wall, I used Elmer’s spray glue to stick the wallpaper sheets to the back. Make sure you wait at last 24 hours for the clear coat to cure before you place the top hutch onto the bottom part.

At the end I painted the hardware in rocky mountain and sealed with Clear Coat. Overall this hutch turned out so beautiful and I love it!

  1. I love this hutch! I just recently painted a gray hutch and never thought about darker shading, I think I’ll try it on mine. I’m wondering where you got this wallpaper from as well. I’d really like to find it so I can put it on mine! My email is if you have the time to reply! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Hi! Can you tell me how you did the shading? I have a hutch that i am redoing and i want that look. Thank you! My email is

    1. Hi Dena! Megan first painted the entire hutch with the medium grey color called Cut a Rug. After that was dry she used a spray bottle to mist it with water and applied Rocky Mountain (a charcoal grey) in some areas. She blended the two colors with a paint brush to create the shading effect 🙂
