The Perfect Hutch

I bought my condo just about 9 years ago. I moved in and instantly began doing what most homeowners do...filled it with furniture. One thing I desperately wanted was a hutch. I knew exactly what I wanted it to look like...beachy, distressed white color, lots of cabinets and drawers. The problem was I couldn't find it in any store; and I searched for years across many states! Several years back a crafty friend of mine refurbished a hutch she had inherited from her husband's great aunt. She couldn't wait to show it to me. My heart skipped a beat when I saw it for the first time. It was MY hutch, but it was sitting in my friend's dining room! I would ohhh and ahhh over it every time I went to visit. I would often joke and say, "You know, someday/somehow this will be sitting in my dining room!" And now ~ it is!! My friend's mom recently downgraded to a smaller home and in the process my friend inherited her mother's dining room set...forcing her to part with the perfect hutch! And so now, it does indeed sit in my dining room!
