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!


Blondie's Journal said... did a great job! It's gorgeous and looks so pretty with all of your Christmas treasure. You are so lucky you have the room. I was just thinking of when I first started following you and you were starting to fill your home. You've come a long way and all of your touches are wonderful!

Happy Holidays!

Looks beautiful. I love how you left buffet top in the original wood stain. Pretty. If I could fit more into my tiny place, I would too! I just recently got my first hutch and in reality it saves room with all the storage, right!!!? Your red and white Willow Ware looks so pretty!

A girl can NEVER have too many china cabinets, oh wait, that's supposed to be diamonds. Ah well, now it looks like a diamond :)

Happy Holidays Tracy!

Hi Tracy. I saw a posting on FaceBook about your blog and I love the way you decorate so I am now following you. But, then I noticed that your posts are all dated 2012, so maybe you have retired! Anyway, I love all your Christmas decorations and hope to see more of you soon..Happy Saturday..Judy
