I love the idea of turning an old hutch into a library... we did this w almost this exact hutch found on craigslist. ours is black washed and I added detail to make the bottom cabinets look like 12 small drawers on each door. very apothecary.

Love the green cabinet - and would put this in my YARN storage area of my fibers studio - lo9aded with luscious YARNS.
This reminds me of my grandma's kitchen. She always had poodles though. She had a brick wall behind the stove, black and white tile on the countertops with a wood butcher top on a tiny island. (photo is by Knitty, Vintage and Rosy)
