Hutch Cabinet

Me and the wife  were out "Antiquing" the other day, and in one of the booths there was a cabinet with a window for the door that we both fell in love with. Unfortunately,  they were asking $600 for it. Now I'm not saying it wasn't worth it, but I don't have that kind of cash laying around.

The Inspiration

Well, as you can see - it is gorgeous and we had the perfect place for it. So I decided to make one! We bought a glass window from the same store for $25. On the way home that day we passed by a store that was being remodeled and they were tearing down ceder boards from the outside that had old green paint on it. We loaded up the back of the truck with these boards for free!  

The table legs were purchased from Home Depot for $17 and I found the knob and hinges on eBay for around $35. I already had all the paint and other things I needed, so for a total of around $80 this is what I made.

We're both happy with it, and I love the green paint that was left on from the original source!
