I bet you thought I would never show you my finished china hutch after I left you with this teaser last time.

But after I finished the exterior, I still had to deal with the remnants of the old interior…remember the fish scales?

 

The fish scales weren’t jiving with my new metallic beauty, so I knew they had to go. My plan was to paint the whole interior white after removing the paint chip scales…except those guys were hanging on for dear life. They weren’t coming off cleanly at all, so I stopped trying and re-grouped. I decided to just cover the fish scales up with some leftover textured wall paper I had on hand. Easy peasy :) If you’ve never used pre-glued textured wall paper before, you can read more about it here.

I cut pieces to fit inside each of the inset panels, and had just enough to piece together to finish the whole thing. I mean JUST enough. It got a little bitĀ FrankensteinĀ in areas, but I think you’d have to be looking really close to tell. Once the wallpaper was dry, I painted it with some leftover white paint.

It’s light in there now, and I love the white-on-white with the china.

I luuuuuurve it.

Whatcha think?
