Before we even moved in, I knew I was going to want to upgrade our china cabinet. We have a cute little old cabinet that we've been using for many years. But... it's just very little. And with a big dining room and a whole wall to fill, I was daydreaming of a more substantial piece of furniture. So... here's the "BEFORE" picture...
I found this big mama through a friend in my mothers' group and ended up trading a diamond ring I found at the beach last Summer. The ring wasn't really my style (although I DO love diamonds...), but I loved the shape and the size of this china cabinet. However, I wanted to paint it. Luckily my husband recognized that he is a perfectionist and I am not... he offered to do the painting if I'd do the sanding.
And I sanded. And sanded. And sanded. There's lots of little nooks and crannies in this hutch!
