Dining room update: china cabinet

You guys, I cannot even tell you how excited I am right now. You know we’ve been shopping for dining room furniture (see my inspiration board here) and we actually purchased it all last weekend! Yippee! This was something we’d been planning and saving for so I was excited when we finally made the purchase. It’s a shame we have to wait 6 more weeks for it to get delivered though.

What I wasn’t expecting to find was a china cabinet.Β  I frivolously looked on Craigslist one day to see if there were any decently-priced pieces for sale when…GASP! I found THE PERFECT ONE. No, seriously. It was a picture perfect image of what I’d envisioned. Shabby chic…classic…but fresh, too. And would go perfectly with our new furniture!

The size is perfect (not too big, not too small) and I love the additional storage. It has a few dings that I need to touch up, but I also love that it has so much character. I really like to mix different pieces and I think this will make the perfect addition to our dining room.

This weekend I plan to fill it with all the beautiful gifts we got for our wedding. It will be so nice to actually show them off rather than keep them stuffed in a cabinet somewhere. I’m also pretty sure a trip to Home Goods will be in my future. πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend!
