Build: 3 drawer wall hutch
Ana White has come through again! Plans for a lovely 3 drawer wall hutch that fits perfectly above the schoolhouse desks or any desk for that matter.
Inspired by Ballard Designs 3-drawer hutch:
Ana drew up the plans and I built two units for about $80 each.
Each unit has 3 generous sized drawers that don't require drawer slides! (or hardware if you choose):
I trimmed out the top in basic crown molding for a finished look.
And added corkboard in between the hutches for hanging artwork:
(See the schoolhouse desk plans here.)
The drawer pull hole was made using a 1 1/2" spade bit and the backing is wide beadboard (or wainscot paneling).
This is how the wall started when we moved in:
Thank you to Ana for making the schoolhouse desk and hutch plans which transformed a completely unused space into something totally functional and organized.
A true haven for my kids who now have their own workspace.
Here's how to build the wall hutch:
1. Follow Ana's plans for cuts and construction.
2. Prime and paint one coat high gloss white enamel.
3. I choose to install a 1x2 cleat at the base in addition to screwing through the top 1x2 on the hutch.
Use 3" screws directly into the studs:
4. Hang the shelves:
5. Install crown molding and paint the final coat.
