China Cabinet Makeover

About two months ago, we found an china cabinet with amazing potential for just $180 at a used furniture shop. It was solid wood with beautiful details and storage. Taking on the task to refurbish this large piece was a little daunting, but it's finally done and we couldn't be happier! 

Weston stripped the polyurethane and sanded down the whole thing then we worked on painting together. We permanently removed the top doors to have an open display. 

There's something about a little teamwork and elbow grease that makes the end result so rewarding!! We added some "vintage" details with the hardware and floral drawer liner on the interior. 

It's been fun to fill up our home little by little with unique pieces. Who says you can't furnish a house with pieces you love while on a budget? We sure don't. The total cost for this project was around $220, while most new pieces I liked even on and amazon were close to $1,000! Here is the finished product, now all that's left to do is grow my collection of glassware and china to fill it up!
