View Full Version : China Cabinet

Got this on Jt a while ago from Shannosi -- only finished it last week. It shows that even old china cabinets can be given a new modern twist. Glass knobs got in Homebase for 6 euro and wallpaper got in woodies for one euro. Just have to get more nice pieces to fill it.

I was showing my son the before and after pics and he said it looks amazing, the paper at the back really sets it off perfect. Well done. Bernie

This is gorgeous!!
I gave away a 1930's cabinet on here as was not within keeping of my other furniture and didn't want to paint it as was an antique.
Maybe should have painted it!! :)
On the look out for one now!!
