Repurposed Secretary Hutch

By Amber Quick, Owner/Designer at Soar and Restore in Andover, MN.

This one-of-a-kind beauty was rebuilt from an 1800s hutch to a secretary desk that survived a tornado in the building it resided in (the base to it was destroyed). The entire hutch was rebuilt with a completely new base, backing, legs and shelves. The body has been painted in a gorgeous off-white color and distressed with a chipped paint look to accentuate all the incredible details. This bookshelf has three removable shelves, a gorgeous brown weathered wood backing and beautiful legs to support all the character contained in this one piece. It is ready to shine once again!
