This old hutch/cabinet has been a part of our family now for over 20 Years. NOw it is not antique-we just bought it at a garden center in Holland, but we still love it. Over the years it has had many uses, a few times I was even ready to kick it to the curb; BUT here we are 20 years later and the cabinet is still with us and is now finally perfect.
The cabinet was bought with the intention of being our coat closet. Then it became a storage unit for all sorts of stuff. After that, well then it was filled with office supplies/stuff. For a years it was home to board games and dvds, till I finally figured out that this cabinet would be perfect for all my tablescape stuff! I went to IKEA, bougt a bunch of matching boxes and started to organize everything. Well, as much as I love IKEA, the boxes are not the best and it did not take long for the boxes to break and the shelves to cave under all the weight. I had my husband make some new shelves, and made my way to IKEA again, this time to buy the plastic containers.
I can not tell you how long it took me to go through everything, sorting and folding and and and…..but the work that both my husband and I put into this project paid off. Sometimes I just open the doors to peek inside and see how pretty it is.
