China Cabinet

Shortly before we bought the house, a friend who was also moving offered us a china cabinet. Can't say no to free, right? And its nice as well and its been painted before, so painting it again wouldn't be a horrible thing to do to an antique. I think he said it belonged to his wife's grandma's sister at one time.

This weekend, I finally got around to painting it. It was not the easiest thing in the world to paint, and to be honest, I don't think I did my best work on it. All the different nooks and crannies make it easy to end up with drips. It turned out pretty well, though. I still need to scrape the paint of the glass and put the handles back on it.
Today we moved it upstairs and I started filling it up with all of my dishes. I'm not sure I like the arrangement, so we'll have to mess with it awhile, but its nice to have somewhere to display them. I've never had room to put them in a cupboard, let alone have them out where anyone could see them. Yeah!
