How To Add Color to Your Hutch

Colors and style change fast these days.  But I admit I love color, so I really wanted to find a way to add color to my hutch without painting the whole thing a trendy color.  I am not opposed to trendy colors, in fact I kind of like them.  But when it takes hours/days to paint something it doesn't make much sense to paint it a color I am going to hate in a few years.

For this hutch I stuck with a nice soft cream latex for the body of the hutch.  
I added my color by removing the old back panel and replacing it with a new one. 

Here is how I did it:
First I popped the old back out.  I was careful to not destroy the old back so I could use is as a pattern for the new back.   
Next I cut my bead board down to size-You can buy 8'x4' sheets of bead board at Home Depot for around $20
After the bead board was cut down to size I painted the entire back with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Duck Egg.  It took me 2 coats of paint.
Once the paint dried I used my staple gun to attach my new back in place.  

Now my white dishes have an awesome backdrop that really makes them pop!

And the best part?  When I am sick of this color I can easily pop that back out and repaint it!
