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.

We just painted a small cabinet in very similar colors. The two pieces would go very well together.
