Jack in the Pot Hutch

Jack in the Pot Hutch

Stephanie from BirdHouse Family  hit the jackpot when she found this hutch on Craigslist for $90, especially considering that she sold an armoire for $125 to make room for the hutch! So … I guess that would be like … a $35 jackpot.  Which doesn’t sound like much of a jackpot at all.  Not to mention she spent forever removing doors and screws and that chain link fence stuff, plus sanding and priming and painting and polishing the original hardware (luuuuhve), but at the end of the rainbow she has a finished product that could easily sell for quadriplet what she paid for it. 

Do you know what I’d call that?  JACKPOT!

    The ‘before’ doors looked like Pawn Shop cage doors! It’s now a timeless classic. Lots of work went into it, good job.

    Question: how did she remove the chainlink from the glass?? Would love to try that on a piece I have my eye on!
