I love free furniture! Especially when it’s in decent shape. Before my “uncreative mom” inspiration, I would have taken the furniture and used it “as is”. However, I am not trying to create (and stick with) a common theme in my house with consistent colors and styles all throughout.
So a few weeks ago, my sister calls me and says there is a free china cabinet available at her work. It was in great shape, but just wasn’t being used anymore…of course, I jumped on it. It’s a nice corner piece which fit perfectly in my kitchen/dining area.
So, we painted the cabinet (inside and out) and spray painted the accents silver.
Now, I have a great piece of furniture that holds all my crystal pieces and serving ware!
