Master Reno: Hutch

When I hit the Mid-Century Furniture Jackpot a couple of weeks ago I knew that the 2-piece hutch was going to be my favorite piece. As we were purchase the furniture I noticed a small tear in the veneer and optimistically thought, oh I can easily fix that!Hutch LaminateWhat I didn’t realize was that the crack wasn’t just surface level, it went all the way through!

Hole in VeneerSo in lieu of trying to repair a section of the veneer we opted instead to create a new backing for the entire piece. We started with 1/8″ plywood and used the old backing as template to cut the new one.

It then got primed and painted coral, the same color as my headboard. The handy husband then re-attached it for me.Nailing Hutch Backing
