My latest project has been to repaint a hutch that I was given by my dad. It belonged to his mom (my grandmother that I never met). Originally I painted it brown as seen below (I painted it back in 2006). But, it just wasn't doing it for me. So I chose Cherry Apple by Glidden to repaint it with. It took MANY coats of the red paint to cover the brown but I didn't want to use primer because I thought it would make the distressing part easier.
I'm really happy with the red! Sometimes color risks pay off.
