You may remember my post about stenciling the glass china cabinet doors. Fortunately or unfortunately, a cat hurled itself at the glass door (obviously something freaked him out) and the glass on one of the doors broke. Now mind you, I didn’t see this happen but I heard a crash in the dining room and when I came in, there he was looking all guilty. Rather than get too upset (it’s just a cabinet, after all) I used it as an opportunity to do something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile but lacked the courage to just do it.
I replaced the glass with chicken wire, or rather, poultry netting if you want to be politically correct.
I never had the guts to replace perfectly good glass, so now was my chance.
I think the solid white provides more contrast against the Duck Egg Blue (Annie Sloan Chalk Paint) used on the inside of the cabinet.
I added a couple small mirrors for interest and to help reflect some light in there.
I’ve also been collecting the white glasses (don’t know what they’re called, do you?) at flea markets.
My grandmother had a set exactly like these and they remind me of visits to her house.
I bought these for about 50 cents a piece. I’ve seen them go for more, though.
