Solid wood hutch - another Craigslist treasure

This doesn't look like much now, but just wait until I'm done painting it. Found this on Craigslist for only $45 at just the minute that I was thinking that I could use more kitchen work stations. My kitchen is tiny, but I have a breakfast room that I will be using more for food prep and storage, and in which this will be placed.

On this piece, I will place rows of large, glass jars filled with oatmeal, sugar, tea bags, flax seed, etc. And the bottom space will hold my appliances. There's enough space for food prep, too. Hubby will fit in an electrical strip in the back.

When you have a kitchen floorspace of just 6'x6' (with 3 people trying to fix food at one time) then storage pieces have to work hard. And down the road, if I don't need this any longer, I'm sure I can get my money back. It's a winner.

Are you serious? $45 ? No way.
I can't wait to see what you will do with it.
Great deal.

I am just pea green with envy!! Everyone where I am right now classifies 70's furniture as antique and tries to charge waaaaaay toooo much!! I have been looking for something like that lately. Maybe I can get lucky soon.... and I will get to see what you did and learn how to do it!! Thanks!! :0)
