I LOVE Craigslist !! New Hutch....

When we bought this double wide, I was originally in love with the open floor plan. As time went by I realized the "openess" has it's disadvantages....When hubby comes home from work and takes a quick snooze on the couch, I can't be in the kitchen piddling around with dinner or dishes etc., without disturbing his beauty rest or power nap.
So I started looking for a cabinet of some kind that would partially block the kitchen off from the living room, just to cut down a hair on the goings on in the other room.I found this hutch/computer desk on Craigslist for $35. It isnt super primitive and I need to fill it up yet , especially to hide what would be cut outs in the back for electical stuff., but i do really like it and it does the job...
Hubby nailed bead board ( looks like wainscotting) to the back and trimmed it off, then watered down and darkened some white paint to give it the whitewashed effect that doesn't show up in this pic that is on the front. It turned out perfect !
This pic was taken with my phone cause my camera went for a swim in a fresh hot cup of pic isn't the greatest, but I'll get another one after it gets decorated and filled up and also take a pic of the back....
