Second Hand Find Oak China Cabinet

Well after a long search, I have purchased a lovely china cabinet. I was looking for a step back or pie safe but when I saw this one on Craigslist I knew I had found what I really liked. How did I know you ask?? Well because I used to own this same cabinet many years ago and sold it when I went through the big D (and I don't mean Dallas).  I loved it then and I love it now and what I really love is that I got a solid Oak cabinet that seems to have been stored and never used for the bargain price of .... $150. Here are a few pictures of my new/old treasure.

(Look at how creepy my Easter bunny and lamb look, they are covered in glass beads and photograph weird). Anyway, I'm happy to have this cabinet and had so much fun filling it up! lol

That's great that you found a cabinet like your old one! Wow, you have a nice collection of crocks! On my computer (laptop) your bunny and chick look just fine, even if I make it bigger.

What a find! You couldn't buy the oak for that at the lumber yard. It is a really pretty cabinet, Michelle. Are you sure it's NOT your old one?;>)

Your "animals" look like ghost animals~just sayin' ~ xo Diana

Ahhhh...very perty Michelle.. I love the china Cupboard! Good Choice for sure..and it looks so nice with all your Goodies in it..
Your bunny and Lamb look a little Ghostly...silly flash anyway..
I get that alot when I'm taking pictures of my creations..Final found if I take the picture looking down on those shinny objects it doesn't come out so ghostly looking.

Have a Great Day!

Hi Michelle - I LOVE your china is very similar to mine, except that mine has glass behind your Simplify sin. The leaded glass doors are exactly the same!!! Beautiful! I love how you have yours decorated.

Sounds like it was meant to be Michelle, what a great story! I love the lead glass, it's so pretty. Very cute how you have it decorated too!

This is beautiful! I have something kind of like it but not as big nor as nice a finish. I think you scored on this piece. I am loving all your posts. I'm catching up. Since mine is not that nice I want to paint it black.
