A Tale of Two China Cabinets

by Cait

Or: How I Spent my Christmas Vacation

Over my long weekend I decided two things: 1) I want a new china cabinet because the bookcase + secretary (below, before I painted it) that we’ve been using isn’t cutting it anymore. The two above are less than $100 on Craigslist, and Robert is going to look at one of them today. 2) My husband has serious opinions about wildlife china cabinets.

  1. Which one do you like better? Depending on what look, style, vibe etc you’re going for the top (first) cabinet would be more easily modernized, the second definitely has country, rustic and vintage written all over it though.

    Good luck, hope you two find something that works for both of you & your space :)

    • Thanks Martina! We thought the same thing about the styles and ended up going with the first one. (Although it was a close call after we saw this modernized china cabinet on Pinterest.)

      Here’s an iPhone picture of the cabinet in our dining room. I worked a bit on styling it last night, and we’re debating about hardware and the idea of painting it. Leaning towards not painting it. For now.

  2. I love craigslist :) Can’t wait to see what you do with it!
