New Life for A Time Worn Piece

This is a china cabinet that belonged to my husband's great grandmother (or great aunt - he isn't 100% sure). We recently inherited it from another family member that could not longer use it. It came to us rather beat up and in a dark wood finish. Shame on me for not getting before photos. Hubby fixed it all up and now it holds our Christmas china as well as some other goodies.


You just can't find furniture like this anymore - unless of course you go antiquing or junking!


A pretty card from pretty friends.


We installed wallpaper along the interior back. It is subtle but brings a nice dimension to the cabinet and pulls everything together.

Have a wonderful day!
