For the last two and half years I have been on the hunt for a hutch for our dining room. At one point I gave up and built some shelves but still continued to hunt for the perfect piece for this spot. Although I mostly was looking for a hutch I also kept my eye out for bookcases too because I love the way they look filled with beautiful serving pieces and I figured if I couldn't find the right hutch maybe I could find the right bookshelf or cabinet. I kept spotting beautiful wood bookcases that had glass doors but couldn't find one that was quite the right size or exactly quite what I was looking for until I saw this one on Wayfair's website last month. It was the perfect size and the price was considerably better than most other places I had seen similar type pieces plus they offer free shipping!
I have to say it is even prettier in person and I am so excited about it. It makes the whole space feel more finished! We are actually making a few other changes in here for spring that I can't wait to share once they are done. Right after I took these photos I painted the walls a soft white color and am lightening up the whole room. Although I do still love Kendall Charcoal I really like how the wood tone looks against the white even better.
I actually haven't spent much time playing around with the shelves yet. I just used the items that were on the rolling cart and a few that were in the kitchen, but I am planning on playing around with them a bit more once I have a chance. I love how the white pieces pop against the darker wood. And I especially love how the piece smells.
