Hutch update

Hey guys, so remember i bought this hutch a while back, seems like forever ago! Here is another update on the progress I have added pulls out of a spool of rope i got at Hobby Lobby for $1. That's right i made 6 knobs with $1 worth of rope! 
This is the rope i used, $1.99 with half off.
I moved the knobs i had on the bottom up to the top 

and replaced them with these wine corks for, that i had laying around.

I used three different knobs for the top, they are from Hobby Lobby. 

 Here is what i still have to do to finish it.
1. I need wood for the bottom shelf.
2. I also need thin plywood sheets for the back of the hutch and the bottom shelf, I'm thinking about doing the lace on the back of the hutch too.... (3.) and i need to fix the top drawer somehow. There is no actual drawer it's just the front of the drawer, we tried putting hinges on it but you could see them on the outside and they were ugly.... so i'll keep you updated on what we do with that.  And (4.) the middle door does not have glass so i'm thinking about putting chicken wire in it instead. 

Here is the before and after so far...

It doesn't look much different but i sanded and stained the whole thing and did the lace on the drawers, remember my inspiration pic...
I love hearing your suggestions so if you have any ideas let me know!
