The Hutch


We got a china hutch that was featured on Craigslist. It measured 72" high, 18" deep and 42" wide. It was listed at $70, which I thought was an excellent price. I mentioned to my wife that the back was missing on the bottom part and we could fix it. The seller heard and said we could pay less, so we settled on $60. I didn't expect that! We don't know many people, so we had to get it home ourselves. The advertised U-Haul rate of $19.99 turned into about $50 with mileage and replenishing 2 gallons of gas. A total of $110 was a bargain, I think, and we are very pleased with the purchase. The dark color is even growing on me.

Very nice hutch! That was nice of the seller to come down in price -- helped a bit on the U-Haul price!

I love it! Its gorgeous. I've always loved those dark greys and blacks DIYers are doing on furniture but I've never been brave enough. Yet. LOL
Wish I had room for something like that. Well done!

It has lots of charm! I think a dark colour can be very dramatic and add interest. And if you ever tire of it, you can always repaint it!

I'd have paid upwards of 200 for it! I love it!!
