We have been playing musical furniture in our house a lot lately. My favorite hutch found a new home in our dining room. While the cabinet has made a world of difference in its new location, it has left a gaping hole in our kitchen!
Lucky for me, I found the perfect sized Step Back Hutch at Simply Vintage of Cape Cod. It came from an old kitchen in Osterville, MA and is thought to date from 1910-1930. Surprisingly it has a solid one-piece backing (the top cannot be removed).
Although the size worked, I hesitated because I thought it was a bit primitive looking and the hardware looked out of place. I wanted something more farmhouse style and was not quite sure if a paint and hardware update alone would do the trick.
