Furniture Fridays - Refinished Antique China Hutch

My friend, Tracy, had this cute antique hutch that was the first thing her parents had purchased when they got married in the 40s.  Since Tracy is re-modeling her kitchen, she wanted an update on the china hutch so it would match her other furniture.

As with any antique furniture, refinishing it can be a little more difficult than with newer items.  Mostly, prep work is the key to a good finish; you know, sanding or sanding deglosser, primer, then caulking around all the seams, then paint.  And to finish it off, put on some Polycrylic (especially in humid climates) that way the glasses, plates and other items will not stick to the latex paint.
