I have been trying to convince my husband since we got married that our wedding china needed a pretty place to call home instead of sitting in boxes. After deciding to move back to East Texas and into a bigger space I immediately starting searching for a piece to display our fun Pip Studio china we received for our wedding.
We both learned real quick how expensive furniture is as we looked at pieces for our new home. I liked the idea of redoing a piece for a fraction of the price and my husband really loved the idea. We decided to go to a few garage sales one Saturday morning to look for a china cabinet or hutch piece. The first one we went to we found this mid century china cabinet for $150. It was not what I had in mind at first because I was thinking of something a little more cottage feeling, but my husband loved it, loved the price, and loved that it was right in front of us and we could stop our search for one.
After texting my mom a few pictures of the piece and getting her approval I decided I could make it work so we purchased the piece and ended up getting it for $115. I started loving it more and more and really liked that it had a lot of display space.
I have always wanted to use this Anthropologie wallpaper somewhere and figured my husband would go for it on the back of my china cabinet better than our bedroom walls. The wallpaper was definitely a splurge, but I did have a coupon :)
As usual, I used Annie Sloan paint on this piece. I went with pure white to match our kitchen cabinets that I painted. I am really happy with how this piece turned out and that I can see my pretty china collection every time I walk through the kitchen. Here are a few pictures of my finished piece. I still need to touch up a few places and seal it, but who knows when that will happen :)
