STAT White Dining Hutch with Shallow 30" Drawer (Hack)

Here's our newly (almost) finished dining hutch - we used 2 30"x18" 'fan' cabinets, one of which was a mis-purchased cabinet that the cat rendered un-returnable, and the other was an AS-IS room pickup, as was the 30" base cabinet.

Since we have high baseboards, we jacked the cabinet up on some 6" CAPITA legs so that the rear of the cabinet would clear the baseboard. We hung each of the 30"x18" cabinets on suspension rails, suspended about 1/2" above the countertop, then used 30" glass cabinet doors on top, with a hacked (see below) 30" shallow drawer below.

The countertop is a leftover piece from the kitchen reno which we practiced our India Ink/Waterlox treatment, ala Brickmanhouse.

We've still not gotten the cover panels on, but this is as finished as it will probably get til after Christmas!

For the Hacked 30" Shallow drawer:

We used a 30" shallow (top to bottom) drawer from the oven cabinet, and a 15" shallow (front to back) drawer to make the 30" drawer for this cabinet.

We used the bottom and back from the 30" drawer and the rails and sides from the 15" shallow wall-cabinet drawer.

The only thing we had to cut was the bottom from the 30" shallow drawer - we used the existing drawer bottom to mark the drawer bottom for cutting, then slid it right in to the short sides from the 15" shallow drawer.

Then we trimmed the 30" STAT/APPLAD drawer front to make it the right height, and redrilled the holes.

Popped the drawer front on, and that was that! A little pricey for a single drawer (about $50 all-told), but saving money on all the other bits made it doable.

Susan it looks fantastic!!!

I love the shiny finish on the countertop.

Did you have to drill any new holes for the glass door hinges or did they fit right into what was there?

Re: STAT White Dining Hutch with Shallow 30" Drawer (Hack)

Better late than never? Sorry - missed the followup to this from almost a year ago!

As far as I remember, we didn't have to drill new holes for the glass doors - they fit onto the existing holes.

Having this in the dining room has been great. Love having the extra surface to park things during a big meal, and I've enjoyed having some of our good china available for use!
