I have had this china cabinet ever since I got married. Wow, its been 24 years now! I picked it up at a yard sale. Our first home was furnished with yard sale, auction and hand me down items.
I have always collected Blue Willow Dishes. I have had my Blue Willow dishes in the china cabinet since I got it. One apartment and two homes later, I have a formal dinning room.
I’m not one to paint furniture, but I thought it was time to give this gal an update.
Last summer we updated an old dinning table set we had. Of course bought at a yard sale, and used chalky paint. Turned out really good. It was time for the china cabinet.
Cleaned out all my Blue Willow and got to work. We used Valspar chalk paint in the light blue/gray color and sealed it with wax.
I have a growing collection of milk glass. My bigger and nicer pieces I thought I would put in with my Blue Willow in my china cabinet.
Going from the dark brown color to a fresh blue color made the whole room look bigger. Made a huge difference. I love it. Makes my dishes pop now.
