Crazy things can happen on Halloween.
The crazies come out.
And they all showed up at Goodwill this Halloween.
Which doesn't say much for me since I was among them. . .
For months now I've been looking for a busted-up china cabinet or hutch to redo. It had to be shabby & it had to be cheap. So on this particular day I strongly regretted leaving home without my depends when I laid eyes on the piece I'd been dreaming of: a broken-down, grimy china cabinet.
Yep, I peed a little.
Here's a before pic in my junked-up garage. Don't judge:
Like the reflection of the yellow-handled broom in the glass door? Photography at its best.
I gave this beast some TLC, paint, and glaze. Here's the glorious "after" shot:
And then came the funnest (yeppers, I just said "funnest") part of all--packing it full of stuff.
Found these vintage S & P shakers @ a yard sale for 2 buckeroos. Holla!
I used lots of my Great-Grandmother's china to fill the shelves. I love the vintage look it gives my kitchen!
A mason jar full of vintage buttons and the cake topper from my great-grandparents' 50th anniversary cake finishes off the look.
It makes me smile every time I walk in my kitchen. : )
