...but you've never seen it naked.
Until now. (My cell phone doesn't count!)
This was Shawn's hutch he had in his room as a boy. He and his brother shared a room and they each had one of these hutches standing back to back dividing their room. When he brought it into our marriage it had Colonial shutter doors and white ceramic knobs. I removed the doors and replaced the hardware with antique glass knobs and some brass pulls (though they definitely need an update again). We've used the hutch constantly throughout our 30 years of marriage, usually as a place to display transferware and store table linens but when we moved to this house there wasn't an obvious perfect spot for it. It's been out in the Sunroom, a room we don't use all the time because it's neither air-conditioned or heated. The hutch has sat lonely against a brick wall for the last 2 1/2 years.
