I have gotten many items this way - free stuff is great. My neighbors know that I collect and take just about anything. So off I go to her house to see it. They had kept it in their garage to store paint. Something must have leaked since there was a mess on the bottom shelf.
Of course I could not let it go to the garbage. Problem was, it was one piece - not two pieces like some hutches. It took two guys and two women to get it in the truck and two had to ride in the back with it to hold on to it.
It is here in my barn, were I would like to use it to store stuff. Not sure what yet.
I tried to clean off what was spilled on the bottom shelf. I ended up putting some stripper on it and it still needs work. Doesn't look much better than the before picture.
The glass in the door needs work too.
Not sure when I will get to this hutch, since I am trying to get other projects done in the barn first. I have been making headway out there and then this arrives. I guess that is just the fun of getting new pieces to work on.
I am so glad that my neighbors keep me in mind. They are great.
