China Cabinet Has a New Look

I finally got around to papering the inside of my china cabinet recently. I've been wanting to do it for some time now but other things keep cropping up. You wouldn't understand that now, would you???? Hmmm???? *Smile*

Anyway, Love Bunny told me if I ever used Mod Podge again on something and then asked him to "get it off" - meaning to sand it off - he was absolutely NOT going to do it. Sigh....... So I had to use regular ol' Tacky Glue to hold the paper up. Men!! Well, it seems to be holding up just fine and I bought about 25 sheets of it and only used about 11 or 12 of them. I plan on papering a little shelf in this office/computer room also. I find this the easiest way to do it while preserving my marriage.

The paper is PINK and a roses kind of swirly design. I didn't want to go overboard with the roses, ya know! LOL

  19. you could also use liquid starch and fabric..it goes on just like wall paper and you can change it out anytime you want to with out sanding etc...and you can just throw that fabric in the wash and it is as good as new...you did a great job and I love your china...:)

  20. I like the look that pink paper gives your cabinet. I never thought about papering the inside of a piece of furniture. Good idea!

  21. Hey Connie; Love love love the pink paper in your cabinet. What a huge difference it makes. Great job.

  22. Connie - I think that it looks really nice. I remember years ago my Mother papered the inside of her China cabinet. It was really "in" then. As nice as yours looks, it will probably be "in" again.

  23. Connie,
    Ths was a great PS post! It looks like putting the paper in the back wasn't the easiest job...my arms would be aching!! But the background certainly makes your pretty things stand out! :-)

    I have been seeing your comments in a lot of my favorite blogs and now I know you have a great blog yourself! I will visit again!!

    xoxo

  26. I love the cream color lace! Complaints about Mod Podge, really? Has he ever used the amazing stuff with on any of his trains? Just think of the things you could put on a locomotive engine!

  27. Hi Connie, I really like your cabinet, it looks so neat and orderly. I like the pink background, it looks so feminine. I was wondering about the lace, is it fabric or paper? Very pretty!

  28. Your china cabinet came out beautiful! I love the way the paper looks. Very nice job!

    You're so funny with the story about hubs refusing the get rid of modge podged stuff. The things they do for us - and we for them!!

  29. Very pretty. I found some scrap book paper I want to use in my china cabinet but I think I'm just going to shove it in there and let the shelves hold it up. I have commitment issues. I am inspired now, Pam
