Re-Loved Hutch in Schloss

We love doing before/afters. This sweet little hutch was a solid wood maple hutch I’ve had for a few months. It was sweet and a great size, but somewhat dated to me.   I decided to take the doors off and make it an open self and re-love the doors into hanging welcome signs. I […]
