"Oh, do you like it? I found it on the curb outside a trashy apartment building in Utica."
She has/had some issues. She's very lightweight so Sean is planning on screwing it into the wall now that I've found a home for it that I'm pleased with. I washed and scraped and painted and wood-glued and clamped. She was old, with only one coat of paint and original glass knobs. The knobs got a soaking and we agreed we liked the creamy color against our kitchen walls so an oops gallon of paint already had made her look fresh and clean.
She was missing a door so we (read Sean) took the other one off and I found the baskets for her lower shelves. I almost wish I had bought two more for the upper shelves but paying retail to get two matching baskets about did my frugal tendencies in.
Sean is also planning on cutting two more shelves for it, to replace the missing ones in the top portion of the hutch. I plan on putting all my colorful pyrex and fun looking dishes that I use regularly in it once its done. For now, it brings a happy smile every time I walk into the kitchen!
