Well as you can see I did start painting. This was just to see if I like the color, which I do. The problem is it has been snowing and I haven't been able to get the rest of my paint. I have been sanding the rest of the hutch and I am debating on what to do with the shelves and the back panel. Any suggestions? I thought about staining it walnut or painting just the shelves red. Also the hardware is a pain. These old hutches have nailed metal pulls and I am not sure if I want to keep it or not. Do I want to paint it or leave it alone? Too many questions!!! Please let me know what you think?
