Transforming An Old China Cabinet

10,474 Views
I do not own a set of China. I do however collect just about anything you can set a table with! I had been on the lookout for a storage piece that I could display my collection in when I ran across this at my local Goodwill.
The style was pretty classic and the price was right at $60, so this mid sized vintage cabinet came home with me!
the easiest thing to do was work on each piece seperate the two sections. I painted each section in a creamy off white to keep a neutral backdrop for my collection of Transfer Ware. For the top of the china cabinet I removed the glass doors and chose to do something a bit more interesting and textural.
I purchased 1 1/2 yards of a neutral damask fabric from Hobby Lobby with a coupon and hotglued it to the back of the cabinet and I love the result!!! It has made a great backdrop for all of the thing I have collected for many years.
i also changed out the drawer pull for some that I actually found on Etsy for $12!

    I thought it was awful when I saw you tear apart that nice China cabinet. I have one similar to it. I keep on my breezeway. Well as I went on I wish I could do the same to mine ! I love it. It really stands out . Mine just sits there ! I keep my baking dishes in the bottom. Thanks for the great idea. People like you have that imagination i wish I had . You know where your going before you even start your project and I am in awe of you. Thanks again.

    Thank you! For the record I did not tear it apart. Everything I did is completely reversible. All of the stuff is in my garage;)
