The Music Room Reno Continues, China Cabinet Update

The Music Room Reno Continues, China Cabinet Update
The Music Room as of Today!

I have a corner china cabinet which I have been intending to update for awhile.  Yesterday I posted that I was into shiny and black, but I like to mix things up.  So the cabinet is staying glossy and white.  And it probably shouldn’t be called a china cabinet since it’s not in a dining room anymore.  So I’m going to call it my “hutch of pretty things”.  And continue putting crystal and a little china in there along with miscellaneous lovely items.  Pretty, pretty, pretty!

I’ve seen many projects in magazines and on Pinterest with the interior of cabinets painted or wallpapered.  I’ve been wanting to update this cabinet and a bookcase in my family room but always get sidetracked with other projects.  Since I’m renewing everything in the music room, I thought it was time to add a little flare.

Here’s a some pinspiration….

I love this wallpaper but possibly too busy with the blue willow dishes I have.
Blue Medallions I Wall Art from Joss and Main!
Love the blue background with the white flowers together but still a little hectic. And no birds allowed.

I decided to paint rather than wallpaper.  The walls are already aqua so I picked a darker color on the same color strip.

That’s my piano under the pretty quilt.

I picked up a stencil at Michael’s.

And stenciled randomly–whatever I thought looked good.

I love it.  A nice subtle effect.  The room’s almost done.  Still need to add a little more lighting, some art, and a dog bed (Maggie has a bed in every room!)  The dog bed will be the easiest envelope style pillow, ever!

Next Week!

  1. I love it ! I’ve been thinking about a mercury glass accent on the back wall of my glass door cabinets in the kitchen. But now I think I need to steal that idea instead. I’d thought about painting, but not the stencils. Sweeet!
