Today I’m back in the dining room! We have had so much rain that I run out and quickly do gardening stuff when I can but by afternoon it’s either raining or so humid you can sweat just standing still! Anyway, I said at the beginning of summer that this was my summer of organizing. So I was working on organizing my kitchen one afternoon and moved some glasses that we don’t use often into my dining room….you know how it goes!

Changing one thing leads to another, leads to re-arranging my entire little black china cabinet!
I put some wine glasses and some other glasses that we don’t use very often on the bottom shelf of this cabinet because I needed space in my kitchen cabinets and of course I then had to re-style the whole thing!
I usually keep my collection of white pitchers on top. I added a big white artichoke finial that I got years ago from Goodwill and a little fake greenery. The framed apple picture is also from Goodwill. I got it because black frame matches the finish on my cabinet perfectly!
Here’s a closeup of what’s inside. As you can see, it really is a little china cabinet! So no fancy arrangements of things. It’s pretty simple! Just some glasses, my salt & pepper shaker collection, a few of my little soup tureens and two little white accessories.
DIY TIP! I always get asked about this…The back is covered in gift wrap from Hobby Lobby! Love their Christmas gift wrap! I think they have the best selection that doesn’t look particularly Christmassy so you can use it for other things -like lining the backs of bookcases, china cabinets and craft projects!
Of course, I still love all my lithographed trays that I have hanging in my dining room. Especially this one with the lemons since it’s got a black and white background which works so nicely with that paper and of course my new dining room curtains.
I also organized the drawer and the shelves on the bottom of this cabinet, but I’ll show you that another day.
Hope you enjoyed a look at my little china cabinet!
