My china cabinet was given to me, and I have enjoyed it, as it fits like it was made to go in the spot of our dining area where we have it, and it holds TONS of stuff.
But it was brown.
I like brown. I like natural wood more than MOST, probably. But the cabinet was in a very dark side of this room, far away from the windows. Spiders LOVE the underside because it's dark there(or so I think). It had become a catch-all, and a light-eater.

It somehow just did not manage that wonderful holiday "glow."
So finally I unloaded it this past weekend, and hubby painted it.
A drastic departure in furniture colors for us.
Then I decided that rather than filling it back up with EVERYTHING that came out of it, I would fill it for CHRISTMAS.
Again, I will say it holds a TON of STUFF.
I think this is drastically better!
Oh, and a picture (or three) of the top:
I am just amazed at how it makes the entire space look so different, so much brighter!
What do YOU think?
It makes me SMILE.
