Updating knotty pine
I think this room was made for a door with a pop of color, don’t you? And after – they tore out the scalloped trim that surrounded the center section of the built-ins, which was an instant improvement.The knotty orange pine, the wood knobs, and the curved apron on the bottom really dated this piece.It wasn’t terrible, but these elements gave it a country cute look that just isn’t my cup of tea.I didn’t fill the holes on the top where the door hinges were, just in case I decide to add the doors back on at some point.
The little black disks on the underside of the top of the hutch are lights.
I had the guy at Home Depot cut the toe kick piece into 4 1/2 inch strips, which is the height I needed to cover the apron on the cabinet.
