a new take on the hutch

Although these two pieces had never met before, they seemed meant to be together. 

 Don't you think?

The credenza started out like this.  Lovely, right?  Have you noticed how every new piece that I bring into my workshop has to serve it's time as a workbench?!  They all put in their time.

Here it is before I put anything up on the magnetic board.  That big space used to hold a mirror, but it seemed so dated.  So, I covered a magnetic board in a nice calm linen and I think it goes well with the hardware I chose for the base.  The magnetic board is much harder working than a mirror, right?

I love how it turned out.  You may see this concept again some time soon around here :)

PS... have you noticed that I am running out of spots to take photos of my pieces?!  I have a number of custom things waiting to be picked up and space is at a premium in this little ranch home!  So the hutch piece lives in my kitchen for now.

thanks for coming by!
