China Cabinet Revisited

As I mentioned Friday, I planned to change out the fabric in the back of my china cabinet, this was to coordinate with the new lumbar pillow on my settee and help to put more of the same color choice in the formal living room. Here is the china cabinet before:




 I purchased fabric for the lumbar, since it was only 2.00 a yard, I bought enough to cover the back of the china cabinet. I am quite pleased with the result, and since I paid so little for it, I decided I would simply cover the existing fabric and hot glue the four corners of the back panel so that if I ever go back to the red tones, I can have the pattern I love in red. Here's the cabinet now ~







I love the dark finish of my cabinet and I decided for contrast, I would leave the inside of the cabinet the original finish and I like the effect it gives. I would like to eventually purchase a set of china in white or ivory with a gold trim or pattern. I know that china will be beautiful in the cabinet.

The cabinet looks pretty, I think the pattern fills up the entire back cabinet perfectly.

The fabric looks great in the cabinet. The right china set would add a nice pop of color.

Mrs. Chic~ I agree, I hope to really make the room look better with a few simple touches like this.

Mrs. Delightful~ I have two daughters, so I plan to pass down my china, the new set will make that plan a reality. I agree, the pops of color are going to stand out.
