My husband got me a new china cabinet for the dining room (I got to pick it out) for Mother’s Day! I had few to choose from that needed painting but I really wasn’t looking forward to adding one more thing to my to do list, so I was lucky to find one that someone had already painted.

I used some Country Living plates and bowls that were purchased at K-Mart (I don’t know if they still have them – I got them in 2009).
That’s the rooster print I found at the thriftstore that I showed you here with my other thrifty finds.
I love that each shelf in the top part of the cabinet has two grooves for plates!
I used to have a black chest of drawers in this spot (which I gave to my daughter) and it held all my tablecloths, placemats, tablerunners and my collection of vintage silverware . I went through my “collection” and got rid of quite a few linens. But as you can see I have room to grow (love table linens!).
An old sewing machine drawer is holding our cloth napkins. I put the placemats in one of the drawers but I think I’ll move them down with the other linens.
One of these days I’ll probably paint the hardware or maybe replace it (like after we move). It’s the china cabinet I always wanted – it’s so cottagey! Which is the style that I like. I didn’t want anything too formal. I also like it because it’s not as deep as the one in the living room (which takes a huge amount of plates to make a display). So this one should be easier to change around!
