New Old China Cabinet

Back to the dining room!  This is my “new” old china cabinet that I purchased from the local auction.  Before I had a smaller curio style cabinet here but I want a taller piece with a little more storage that would match the table.

I love the fleur de lis detail on the doors!

Having this taller dark piece seems to anchor the room.  I displayed some silver pieces on top which even gives it more height.  Yes, I have cleaned my silver since this pic was taken!  My mom made me aware that I all had to do now was clean the silver!  Thanks, Mom!

I had to bring a little coastal touch to this room with a big bowl filled with shells for the centerpiece!  Love it!

  1. looks great! I'm not very good at keeping my silver pieces cleaned either, so I keep them hidden!!

    1. Mine were all hidden but I decided I wanted to enjoy them even if they were tarnished! So I started displaying pieces and using them in the d├ęcor!

  2. I think it looks good. I have a similar cabinet that is now in the sunroom and is a "bookcase" rather than a china cabinet but they are quality furniture.

    1. Martha, I just told my mom this last week! She has a china cabinet that she is not using but said she needs a bookcase and I told her to use it! Sometimes, we have to think outside of the box!

  4. That is a beautiful piece Tammy. I guess I had better not show your mom my silver :D They are all tarnished. By design... I luv them that way.
    Hugs, Gee

  5. What a beautiful piece, Tammy! It looks so stately in your dining room. And the silver is beautiful, even if it isn't polished. The patina adds character!
