Simple Cabinet - Before & After

Happy Beautiful Fall Saturday to you.  I told ya last time I'd share some pictures of a cabinet re-do with you so here we go.  I found this old hutch at a junk store - it had some flaws of course but I just loved it from the minute I saw it - it was one of those - "I don't know where it's going but I'm getting it anyway" kind of moments.
It was oak with this neat tongue and groove back.  Once upon a time it had doors but that's o.k.
 The first thing I did was use some paint from Lowe's called "Flood Tide" and dry brushed the inside of the cabinet.
 I truly debated leaving it in it's natural color but in the end - the creamy white won out.
A heavy distressing...
I had a roll of $1.00 wallpaper from a clearance bin that I used to line the drawers with.
 And here it is - Simply filled with some of my white pitchers and a touch of fall along with...
 ...these beautiful orange bowls my mom gave me.
 And I've already started to store a few napkins in the drawers.
 This is a shot of the kitchen right beside the cabinet as you'll see in the first picture...
 ...and I just love the way the colors blended together.
Hope you have a happy day!

Your kitchen is delightful and I love the white cabinet. I am a white dish lover and the little touch of orange with those beautiful bowls is just perfect. Deb

I turned out so well!
Sometimes we have to get those things that we really want but
not sure what we'll do with it.
