I am so so excited about building this! We are just about to start my son's playroom, so what great timing. I will send photos once I complete it. Thanks again. :0)

Just wondering if you found it necessary to secure the hutch to the cubby drawer? I am wanting to build this just slightly wider to accommodate some nice wooden drawers I found out on the curb.

Just wondering how you would secure it with out the hardware being overly exposed or in the way?
