I've always thought it would be fun to have a hutch but I never had room in my kitchen. But now I do AND my grandma gave me hers so double blessing! Now it's very old and dark and I planned on staining it or painting it or something. However, when I started sanding I realized just how much work it would take, so I took the lazy way out. I took off the doors, cleaned it and slapped on a little stain and called it good.
