Vintage Ethan Allen Stepback Vintage Ethan Allen Stepback. This is a vintage step back hutch we refinished. It is two pieces and its maker is Ethan Allen. It is solid (very heavy) maple. We painted the base and hutch top in Amy Howard at Home Paint in black. We left the natural maple on the surface area as it added such a wonderful contrast to the paint. We added a new bead board backer to the hutch top and used the Amy Howard at Home stain in a maple tone to blend perfectly. It offer a huge amount of storage throughout. The hutch top has three drawers and shelves with carved plate holders. The base house two large cabinets and a total of five nice size storage drawers. original hardware has been cleaned and polished. Stunning piece with great rustic flair.
