China Cabinets and Chicken Wire

You may or may not remember that I passed on the $400 Antique secretary a few months ago. There is still a gaping hole along the dining room wall that is begging for some kind of display case, console, china cabinet, bookshelf, something……… I’m likely to leave it blank until I find a tolerable piece of furniture for next to nothing at a thrift store. One that I’ll feel comfortable painting the interior and eh………. perhaps replacing the glass fronts with Chicken Wire??

  • Hey girl,
    Go and check out the Hickory Antique mall again…there is a secretary by the front that is only around $100 or so. It may even be the same one that was $400 bucks! The scale seemed smaller, though, but the price sure is nice. It has been over a week or so since the sighting, and 2 newlyweds were eyeing it pretty hard!
    p.s. I’m at six months now, hard to believe! You need to see my bump!!

  • I’ll go check out the Antiques Mall at lunchtime. Thanks for the heads up! I would love to see you and your babybelly!

  • I would love to know what color is on your table and chairs? I am looking to refinish a set just like this…any advise is appreciated!!
