Somethin Old, Something New

Do you scour Craigslist for months  searching for a particular item? One of my evening activities when I'm sitting down watching TV is to search our local Craiglist. Right now I'm looking for a few things, but about a month ago, I started seriously looking for a china cabinet with a hutch so that my Waterford crystal could be moved out of a couple of kitchen cabinets.
My new cabinet is made by Thomasville - the same manufacturer as my dining room table and chairs, but I think it's a few years older.

Look at all that space!

How quickly it all filled up! If you look closely, you'll also notice a new set of dishes...but you'll have to wait until Tablescape Thursday to see it!

I keep another set of china down below along with china platters and other serving item.
Now that I have my new cabinet, we will be working on updating the room with some fresh paint, slipcovers and pillows. It's definitely time to get rid of that red! You can see my design  plan for this room by clicking HERE

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. What a gorgeous piece of furniture. It looks great filled with your beautiful things!

  2. That is a real beauty Pam...looks perfect. Can't wait to see the room come together around it.

  3. Pam, that is sooo pretty! I love it! So much space too. You are gonna love it, I know I was thrilled when I got mine! I cannot wait to see the changes you make in this room. Congrat on the new dishes too, I can't wait to see those also. :))

  4. Pam that is a beautiful find! I love the top pediment and the classic fretwork on the doors! You must be so thrilled! The red on the wall does seem to absorb it- I know you will find just the right color! Aren't you glad you aren't moving now!

  5. Oh my, your new cabinet is just wonderful. I love the style and your china and crystal is just gorgeous. Great storage too. Hugs, Marty

  6. It's Beautiful! Can't wait to see the "new" completed room :)

  7. Pam its beautiful, love the traditional design of hutch very much ... After red for which colour you want to go? with some light shade? Waiting anxiously for the fabulous results of you transformation...

  8. Pam, that is one beautiful piece! I love your Waterford. I am going to start my own collection when we go to Ireland this time. The last few times, we have bought my MIL pieces that she started when we took her there. I need my own now! That looks so beautiful with all your crystal and white! I can't wait to see what you do with your dining room!

  9. Beautiful cabinet!

    Looking forward to seeing your tablescape.

  10. What a beautiful hutch. I think these are essential if you have the space for them. Your look amazing and you have managed to fit so much in there.
