About This Project

My kitchen cabinets were deep, dark and disorganized. Trying to find things was like cave exploring. When we began remodeling our kitchen I knew those cabinets had to go and be replaced with some open shelving where I could see things without a flashlight.
I love how these turned out! Now I can see what I need and don't have to spend 20 minutes with a flashlight digging through a cabinet.
I plan on making curtains to cover up the stuff on the bottom shelves so my kitchen doesn't look quite so busy.
Thanks Ana!

Estimated Cost: 
$300. for two hutches approx. 7ft tall x 4 ft wide x 2 ft deep on bottom and 1 ft deep on top
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
White boards and pine plywood
Finish Used: 
MinWax Pre-Stain, MinWax Golden Oak stain for the main body Zinsser 1-2-3 primer, Rustoleum Hammered Metal spray paint for the tops Varathane polyurethane over everything I was amazed at how much stain this wood soaked up even with using the pre-stain! Started out buying a small can and ended up going back to buy a 32 oz. and then having to buy another 32 oz and used half of that. Also used about 6 cans of the Rustoleum. Learned that the trigger spray works much better than the regular spray for creating the textured finish.

It looks like the one hutch

It looks like the one hutch is leaning, but it's square. I live in a mobile home and have found that NOTHING is square in my tin-can home! At least the furniture that I've built is square.

Use of space

Pam I love your hutch and the new use of space. I would love to see more plans for Mobile/manufactured homes, small homes, and apartments. Love anything that is multi-use or space conservative like built-ins.

Thanks, Viola. Our place is

Thanks, Viola. Our place is only 900 sq ft so I'm always trying to find ways to make things more efficient around here. I have been amazed at how much these hutches hold. I think my next project is going to be an entertainment center for our living room that will also have space for all our chargers.

Looks Great!

I love the hutch. My wife and I also live in a small house with very little cabinet space. I like your open space idea and your hutch looks great.
