When I saw this sad, lonely china cabinet sitting in a thrift store for only $19 my eyes widened and my heart started racing. You all know that feeling when you find a diamond in the rough for next to nothing! I scooped it up and took it home and went to work. My new small kitchen in my old historic home was short a pantry so I knew this would come in handy.
First the doors came off. They were missing the glass and I wanted open shelving so I didn’t have to fight for my food because that would make me angry. I added chicken wire to the sides, again missing glass, to contain my bags and boxes of goodies. A couple of coats of white chalk paint, some baskets and pails, and there it was. My answer to all of my cannned and dried food storage problems and it hides some small appliances underneath too. Petite but sweet!
