Hunting for a Hutch

I'm tired of not having space to store extra things in the kitchen (serving platters, pitchers, linens, etc.) and all I want is a little hutch or cabinet to go in the dining room. I'm on the hunt for something I could refurbish (because really, that's what I want to do...nothing fancy) to use as a home for these items.
This is some of my inspiration...

I went to the Salvation Army & the Goodwill (because I check my 2 regular thrifting places pretty frequently, and those are two I haven't been to) and made a quick lap around the furniture sections. No luck at either place. But I did walk out with these bargains & treasures for just $3.23!

The pots are going straight to my potting bench for storage of garden things that need storing, or use as actual pots sometime in the future. And the jars...I just have a thing for jars. The clear ones will be for storage, and the blue canning jar is just a little bitty guy, and will be added to my jar collection.

Today's fishing report: 8 fish, still raining.

Nice catch Cory! :)

Great little finds there and I love your inspirations. You should tell Cory to make sure that he continues to do well with fishing and give Jim a belated bday fish!! I can't believe the size of those things! We need to get together soon!! I miss you!

I have a hutch for sale! It's not old, though, it's only a couple years old. But there's no law that says you can't refinish something new. Let me know if you want more details...
