White Cottage Chippy Cabinet


Terry made this china cabinet for me years ago.  He used old salvaged windows.  I have always loved this cabinet especially since Terry made it for me.  I finally had a place for it and with some convincing and a few trades of furniture I got it back from my daughter.

I found this old window years ago and always loved the arch to this piece.  Terry added an old door knob.

It was chippy in all the right places.

These cool side windows were found at the flea market many years ago.  There were two of them and I did not know what or where I was going to put them.  I just knew I needed to have them.  I am so happy because when Terry made this cabinet they fit perfectly.

I bought some wicker baskets that will go in these cubby holes.

I have glass shelves going in soon.

You can see the glass shelves in this picture.

Here is a picture of the cabinet when Terry first made this for me years ago.

I am working on styling this cabinet.  I may not have it ready to show you until my Christmas decor starts in early November.
I have some ideas running through my head on styling the cabinet for Christmas.

Happy Fall
Happy Weekend.
Hugs Kris
