This china cabinet dates back to the early 1900’s. It is made from quarter-sawn oak and is extremely durable and sturdy. The original glass and hardware add vintage charm that you often don’t find on other pieces.
I loved the quality and lines this piece offered yet it seemed a bit dated in its original state. I decided to paint it in ASCP Country Grey. I also distressed it lightly. The top of the buffet was sanded a lot so you could see the details only quarter-sawn wood has to offer.
I think the best part about it is that the top can be separated from the bottom. We did at one time have the top hung about 18 inches above the bottom. I loved this because we could use the bottom for display and for its intended purpose.
The china cabinet was given to me by my Mom and she graciously gave me to go ahead to spruce it up. Now it can be enjoyed by another family and it will truly last for several generations to come. You can purchase this piece at Carter’s Cottage.
