More than all the tea in...


We've been looking for so long to have a place to store our china, I m now so happy to have it displayed in our dining room.

First, we scrounged Craigslist and got a smoking deal on an 80s castoff. Then we primed and painted (and went through fits with the color). This weekend, we finished it off with some wrapping paper from Ink and Paper and a bottle of Mod Podge.

So with a little bit of 80s in the furniture and some 70s in the paper, we've hopefully made our dining room a little more modern.

I love the way our simple china stands outs against the bold backing.

I can't wait to see it with gray walls and some more modern dining room furniture. In a few years, of course.
