Help please! turning cabinets into kitchen hutch
I originally posted this in the kitchen forums and thought maybe some woodworking experts might be able to help with some of these questions. I am planning to reuse two of my old kitchen cabinets (upper and base) to make into a pantry/hutch/server on a large wall in the kitchen. I should mention my DH is a talented (non-pro) carpenter who has made some nice pieces of furniture in the past, so he's not afraid of the work involved.
If anyone has tackled this type of project in the past, I'd appreciate any help or photos of such projects. Thanks!
Here is a picture of the cabinets before they were removed:
Here's a very rough sketch of my "vision"
I am looking for an old fashioned style, with simple mouldings to hide where we attach the sides (home depot has limited options). Any ideas are welcome!!
