This is a project that has been going on for almost a year! So, I am so excited to cross it off my to do list and share my painted china cabinet with you today!
Here is what I started with. It wasn’t anything special, just an old china cabinet.
Here is an in progress shot.
When I started working on this, I knew I was going to use Boxwood in Miss Mustard Seeds milk paint line. I had this color already and I LOVED it! When I started painting the china cabinet, I loved the color even more. I’m even considering using it for some accent cabinets.
I ended up using fabric for the interior. I wanted something that would make the china we had pop. So, we just Mod Podged the fabric on. If I got tired of it, I’m sure I could paint right over it. I could also pin a different fabric over it to change it for the seasons.
The fabric was a perfect match to MMS Boxwood color. I love how the fabric feels vintage in this cabinet.
The house is finally starting to come together. I knew I wanted photos of this painted china cabinet, so it motivated me to get some pictures hung up too. The pictures flanking the cabinets were made by my grandmother. My grandfather was a metal sculpture artist and he taught her how to do it. She continued on with it after he passed away. She was also an artist and she would finish the leaves by painting them. Since she has passed away, these pieces of art hold a lot of sentimental value for me.
It’s nice to finally have a fully unpacked kitchen and the dining room complete! Only a zillion more rooms to go. I really enjoy the warmth that this painted china cabinet gives the dining room.
What kinds of projects are you working on? Do you have any pieces that hold a lot of sentimental value to you?
