Day 7: The Craft Hutch

I have decided I NEED a hutch for my desk, or at least storage with the look and functionality of a hutch!

Wikipedia defines the hutch as

Hutch (furniture)

Now usually used to describe a set of shelves or cabinets placed on top of a lower unit with a counter and either drawers or cabinets. Hutches are often seen in the form of desks, dining room or kitchen furniture. Frequently referred to by furniture aficionados as a hutch dresser.

Typically fashioned from timber, modern hutch dressers can range from country cottage style (frequently solid timber, sometimes adorned with ornate scrollwork) to the sleek lines of the wood grain veneer style popularised throughout the 1960s to 1980s.

I Googled and found these beauties:

Sadly none of these (as they are) are possible in my small space, so I'm looking for your input here.  Show me the space on/above your desk.  What's there, how is it stored and do you have a hutch or something like it?   I'm looking for real ideas from real crafters, it doesn't need to be pretty or magazine worthy (my area isn't), I'm looking for regular everyday ideas I can incorporate into my own area. 

You can help in 2 ways:

  • Link to your blog/gallery/site if you have photos there of this stuff (obviously I don't mind how old the post is, but please link to the page with the photos rather than the blog home page) via the InLinkz widget below (look for the blue frog), or
  • Email photos to me at - please let me know if it's ok to share them or if they are for my eyes only.

Can't wait to see what you all have - I need all the help I can get!
