Call it the European influence or a return to this country's notions: Many of today's kitchens are assigning furniture duties to cabinetry. Some pieces are freestanding, but others simply appear to be, standing in as china hutches, pie safes, and buffets.
Country Kitchens from Larry Pearson on HGTV.my kitchen desk converted to this country hutch with granite counter top for coffee area. I like the center storage for coffee cups and the storage in the cabinet for dishes, ect.
It was first painted with GF Somerset Gold Milk Paint then a layer of Corinth Blue Milk Paint. It was distressed to show the gold paint underneath. The hutch top was also stained with our Java Gel Stain.
