French blue cabinet

Hello Everyone!!

I have that paint brush fever...nothing seems to be safe in my home lately!
I decided my old china cabinet was in need of some wowing!!

So I painted her up a beautiful French blue... My Mason's Pink Vista china really stands out now!!



This was the before...








I know ...I know something needs to be done about these walls. But you have not really
seen the size of this room or how high these ceilings are!!! I can only imagine the gallons
of paint it will take...and money!!



My peacock feathers look lovely against this colour...



Meet me over at Kim's blog Savvy Southern Style for WOW US WEDNESDAY!!

Lots of wow going on over their!!


Thanks for visiting

  15. The chairs are much improved and so is your china cabinet. You're right, your china looks terific in it. I think my china cabinet is a sister to yours! I traded Vintage Gal for it, then painted it white.

  17. It looks waaaay better this way..what a tedious job you have done lately. Is your wrist sore yet?

    don't worry about the walls, it is the cabinet we are looking at!

    And it turned out wonderful!

  18. I love the soft blue color you chose. That gorgeous cabinet would look fabulous against pale gray walls. but the peacock feathers do look good with the wall color as it is. Decisions! Love your pretty china!

  19. Pamela, this cabinet looks wonderful in its new color. If you can get Benjamin Moore paint it won't take as much as you think for the walls. We did our two story great room, foyer, two story stair well, upstairs hall and small hall with l 1/2 gallons. Not kidding! Husband did the high part and I did the rest. Thanks for joining WUW!

  35. Hey Pam...this looks really great. Did you have any second thoughts about painting it? I have an entertainment center that I am thinking about painting but I am so worried that I'll regret it. I should probably just take the plunge! Thanks for visiting my blog and your nice comments. Hope your week is going great...the weekend is almost here! ~Ann

  40. I absolutely LOVE it!
    When I grow up I am actually going to use my camera to take photographs insted of my cell phone! LOL!
    My grey table looks blue in the photos.
    Have you ever tried adding patina with aluminum foil? It is so simple and the result is awesome! PLUS you can re-use the aluminum foil from your leftovers instead of throwing it away!
