This china cabinet is my favorite piece of furniture, and when I get an itch to change up my decor, the china cabinet is usually one of the first changes I make. And it makes such a HUGE impact. I can change the entire mood of my home by changing out the window panels.
For a couple of months after Christmas, I had this going on…
I think it was beautiful. So serene and calming, but not at all boring.
Then I decided to infuse some color for spring. I found this paper first, but I couldn’t make it work.
So I put up a panel of coffee dyed fabric. And left it for a couple of days. It looked too dark; too much of a contrast between the fabric and furniture. Finally, I used the paper to make a cute little “valance” and I love the way it bridges the white of the cabinet with the gorgeous stripes.
My dining room faces south, and I just couldn’t get a picture without a glare from the windows. Oops. Here’s the cabinet’s entire journey, from free, laminate 80s furniture, to my favorite piece!
