Primitive Hutch and Cabinet Made From Shutters, an Old Screen Window and a TV Cabinet!

This project was a lot of fun to make.  I married several items together to create it.  The base was formerly a TV cabinet that I purchased at a garage sale for $10.  It had a bit of an art deco look, which did not go with the primitive farmhouse look I was going for, so I added the flat moulding around the doors and chippy wooden knobs.  I then painted and distressed it.  The top hutch was made from old shutters and a window screen.  It stands 8 feet tall.  I sold it very quickly last week at the Vintage Barn Antique Show in Rathdrum, Idaho.
