I have a special place in my heart (at the moment) for worn, distressed, teal-painted cabinets and chests and doors.
from around the interwebs
I also have this china cabinet in my dining room, which I love with all my heart:
It was a gift from my ex-in-laws several years ago, who'd purchased it to stage a home they were selling, but then didn't want to keep when they moved.
I've arranged all my herbs, teas, and spices in pretty little jars and boxes inside the upper cabinets - inspired by the *awesome* pantry cabinets at The Aunts' house in Practical Magic (which is one of my all-time favorite movies):
images and other wonderful things from the fansite Amas Veritas
I'm also test-driving a diamond-y window leading pattern (like this) on the glass doors by way of a Sharpie marker and a ruler, hehe. The plan was that I could easily clean the marker off the glass if I hated the look - but I love it, and plan to upgrade to decorative press-on leading from the hobby store on that fated "One of These Days."
MY question is - do I have the balls to paint my china cabinet a distressed teal? Do I paint the whole thing, or just the inside?
(I SUCK at photoshop, lol)
