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.
I am not good at decorating on my own, but sometimes I see things that make my heart feel nice and warm. This room is one of those. For some reason I can imagine that right outside that door is the beautiful ocean where I can surf with my family all day.
