Dresser hutch made into a shelf

I came across this dresser hutch on freecycle and knew right away that I wanted it for some extra storage in my craft area.  You don't pass up free right?

I had seen this done, but cannot find it again.  If anyone knows of a website this is on, please let me know!

Anyway, I had to do some demo before the painting could begin.  The mirror had to go and so did the oval carving in the top. It was a wheat emblem or something similar.

I painted it in white and cut some wood for shelves.  I decided to add the shelves on top of the shelves that were already there. that way I didn't have to find brackets.

This is it finished and on top of my sewing table.  Now, I can organize my piles (and piles) of supplies.  It will be so much easier to find what I need!
