A halfway hutch

So I have this hutch done.....for now :) I have a few more plans for it, but I couldn't take our home being so empty any longer! I had to move it in for the time being. I do still plan on adding chicken wire and an X with strips of wood to each door, some kind of hardware on the right door and eventually finding a bottom cabinet for it and making this the top part of a 'hutch'. Also after taking photos, I realized if I am going to put this higher eventually, I may want to paint the bottom of the shelves. Whoops, missed those.
 I got this for FREE last summer and after the first coat of white stayed away from it for way too long. I decided to go with gray for it so that my white dishes would stand out a bit more.

Here she is before, in all her hippy contact paper glory:

And here she is now:

I'm so happy with it! My dishes that have been gathering in boxes for a couple years are screeching with excitement to be on display:) Also my globes, which are almost a collection. 3 of anything is a collection right? I'm on the lookout for one more:)
