Before and After: An '80s Hutch Gets Up-to-Date

Before and After: An '80s Hutch Gets Up-to-Date

It was pretty darn ugly, so hubby and I decided to give it a makeover."

I agree with Crystal; it looks AMAZING but I think it would look absolutely incredible with more updated hardware. But still, great job!!
