I haunted Craigslist for days/weeks/months/(who knows) to find a similar piece for a good price, and finally came across this one:
Everybody wins!So the hutch came home in April, I think…and then it sat….and sat…and sat…until finally I was ready to do something with my dining room.
I had a different vision for the backing other than beadboard, but I had to bring the hutch inside before I got to it in order to keep it “safe” from other garage projects.
I placed it against the dining room wall that was supposed to be it’s new home…and promptly hated it.
It was too. darn. big.
Sadly, I knew right then that it wasn’t staying. I decided to use beadboard for the backing, painted a couple of shades darker than the rest of the hutch.
After putting it all together, I could appreciate that it was a pretty piece…just not for me! It has moved on to a new home now.
<Sigh.> Better luck next time!
