I easily fall in love with mid-century furniture. I have this thing for solid wood pieces that have a vintage feel but also feel modern, mid-mod fits that aesthetic perfectly and honestly, most of our home could be described as mid-mod with a hint of bohemian splashed in for spice. I found our mid-mod hutch at a local shop and instantly knew I needed to bring it home. At some point in this hutch's life, new glass was added from a different era, I understand the why but for our want, we decided to smash it! We use this piece as a entry "table" slash bookcase rather than in a dining room.
Our piece did not end up having doors and the glass made it hard to access the center of the shelves. We used a large plastic bag and shimmied it over the glass, hit that baby with a hammer so that broken bits would be caught in the bag and then disposed of the broken glass carefully.

Our hutch holds books and Andrew's video games as well as our collection on vintage cameras. In the drawers and cabinets, we store Matilda's snacks and toys and board games. For us, its an unconventional way to use an heirloom piece but it fits our space best this way and we love seeing our collectables displayed uniquely and easily accessible.
