Hutch - updated and ready for use

Purchased this 1978 hutch for use in our breakfast nook.
Our kitchen is small so this is for extra storage space.


I painted dark gray, then creamy white, followed by 
a glaze of the dark gray.
The distressing was done with a putty knife.


The completed hutch.....


....now loaded.


Details of the distressing.....


The little knobs are original, spray painted to look like
aged iron.


The pulls are new, but spray painted to match the knobs.


And finally the whole picture....
Now my question, the glass top table will be replaced,
but with what?  I want wood, but round, square or rectangular?
Any thoughts?


This project was intensive, be I'm pleased with the outcome.

Enjoy your weekend!
Carolyn

*updated to add this photo with a vintage table cloth.
Thanks Aunt Lois for the suggestion.

Love what you did with the hutch. I'd go with a round table - the hutch is tall and angular, so IMHO the table should curve.

Love the hutch. You did a great job. I do like the round table. Wood or painted will look great with the hutch.
