One down... A zillion to go

Waaayyyyy back in... OMG was it really April? So back in April I mentioned I was working on a corner cabinet for the dining room. The cabinet used to live in my mothers kitchen, but she tore a wall out during their recent remodel and it no longer fit so I brought it home. I finally finished it! Praise the gods! Something is done, at long last!


BEFORE
It had drawers, but apparently I forgot to take a real Before shot. 




AFTER
Yay! It's still missing the right top knob because I bought it and then promptly lost it. I am sure the house will vomit it up at some point in the future, so I refuse to buy a replacement.

It is currently housing my paternal grandmothers china. 

I just love the little detail on the lid.
The colors are perfect for our space! 

The top shelf holds some of my etsy finds:

Asirons
Trixie Delicious

I love unexpected pieces. I also love how you don't notice the "twisted" detail until you take a closer look.


The serving dish on the far right belongs to my maternal grandmothers china set, which I also have. The small cordial glasses have etched detail and came as freebies in the Vanilla Royale gift sets around Christmas. It's Misters favorite winter time drink, so my dad kept buying the sets...

I'm linking up to CSI's Roadkill Rescue and Thrifty Chick Decor's Before & After Party.  For other fantastic transformations, be sure to click on the buttons!

Wow what a transformation. Such a wonderful way to display family heirlooms. No wonder you've been away, you've been hard at work.

Take Care,
