Hutch top transformation

I found the two pieces to an old hutch being thrown out. The bottom portion didn't interest me, but I could see a great bookcase just waiting to be created from the top. It was missing the glass from one of the sides, and it also was missing the top. Kind of a blessing, because it made painting, and replacing the shelves quite accessible and easy. I added some legs to the bottom. Painted it with primer, then painted it black and distressed it. I left the door the original color, and replaced the trim. The shelves are walnut too. It is very heavy and I was very pleased with how it turned out. Thought I would share.

I've been thinking about making a bench from the bed. I think I'll still do that but steal a little off the legs to use on this hutch top. Thanks for a great idea.
