The April Hutch - Before & After

BeforeAfter
This is a french provencial hutch that is so charming. It sits up on sweet legs and has wonderful wood detailing on the drawers and the base.
I usually do not like etchings in the glass but this one is a huge exception. It compliments the hardware and gives the piece so much character. Even if we could take it off I would recommend leave it in its original state.
The top has one big door and two side pieces. The door is quite large which makes it super easy to load. Often times you find yourself working around skinny double doors.

I hope that our client April is happy with her hutch. She took her time and found the perfect one and I am sure that will fit right into her new home.

Up next is another vintage white hutch! Mike has been working all day to complete this and it will be available to be purchased within the next couple of days!
Happy 4th of July!

I am the lucky girl and I absolutely love it. It's exactly what I have been searching for. It totally makes my dining room/kitchen. I haven't been this excited about a furniture piece in a long time. Thanks Melanie and Mike for finding the perfect hutch for me.
