Homemade Hutch

    This next project is a cabinet with a hutch. The cabinet came from a store closing- it had no doors but lots of possibilities...

I wanted something tall for my store, but nothing had materialized so I had to build the hutch myself...

The whole shelf (with doors) needed 18ft of 1x12 pine and a role of hardware cloth.

The two pieces were painted with a grey mistint, then dry - brushed with white. I backed the hutch with 1/4" plywood painted aqua to highlight the white pieces inside.

Then for the upper doors I attached wire screen inside door frames so any knick-knacks could be displayed proudly and put on knobs that looked like birds with matching glass colored handles my daughter had left over from her kitchen for the bottom doors.
