A few weeks ago I ran across a nice mid-century Drexel step-back hutch. Solid cherry, pretty, but so very dated looking and enough nicked up that I decided paint would be the best way to bring it back into vogue. That cherry wood will still be there if someone/someday wants to strip it down and refinish it all.
This piece has storage and then some. The hardware was in really good shape and we opted to reuse it as it fit the scale and style of the hutch. I love Paris Grey, and to be honest that surprised me as I'm normally more into warm tones. I'm really learning to appreciate it as the great neutral that it is.
I painted the back in Old White to lighten it up a bit. Some distressing shabby's it up just enough to give it a nice farmhouse feel. And if you don't happen to need a storage piece for the kitchen or dining room, it's a 2 piece unit and the bottom half would make an awesome console cabinet for an entry hall or family room.
It's tall, it's SOLID, it's solid cherry wood, it's Drexel made quality, it's FOR SALE!!! For my local Nebraska peeps you just need to let me know if you'd like to stop by and take a peek. They don't make them like this anymore!
Have a great week!
