1. A hutch we accidentally bought as a desk. 2. Covered with contact paper. Make sure to smooth out bubbles. Since we moved it around, it looks more bubbly than it actually it is. Ideally, you want cardboard for bottom to be covered with contact paper. 3. Decorate for Christmas. 4. Enjoy. :) Ours is still a WIP, especially since were constructing a fireplace screen. Total cost: $35 (contact paper, deco from Old Time Pottery, thrift store hutch).
