Not another china cabinet? ... um, yeah

The number of china cabinets that reside in my relatively small home has become something of a joke with my kids.  They mock me.  I think I have 4 of them right now, but that could change at any time.  I probably have more buffets than that, to be fair.  I just really like china cabinets, what can I say?  Here's the one I recently painted:

Here is the before shot, which shows a perfectly nice cherry cabinet.  I really didn't like the color of it against the wall, so I painted it in ASCP Pure White.  I think I have gone through 6 or 7 cans of that stuff already. 

 Also added glass knobs and silver bin pulls for a bit of an update.  I bought a real drill, so now I'm wondering what else I can put holes in.  Here is the look for Christmas - sorry for the bad lighting, this room does not get good light in the winter.

Hope you are having a nice week!

Ruffled Tree Skirt and The Box 2012

Everyone ready for the holidays?  I'm getting there slowly.  I still have a lot of shopping to do.

This year I'm doing kind of a nature-meets-shabby chic look for the Holidays.  I made a tree skirt ala Miss Mustard Seed using a $4 twin flat sheet from Walmart.  It took a couple hours to rip it up and hot glue the ruffles but it was easy to do and I love it.  I have it elevated on a table because my cat would make a mess of it otherwise.  The rest of the photos are more detailed pictures of the decor in my dining room/kitchen area, including this years version of "the box".  For last years, click here.

Hope you are enjoying the season!
