Today I am sharing with you how I updated my so so china cabinet into a more stylish entertaining hutch. Ok so it was always a hutch, I just made the room so much more appealing by adding the woven basket textures to a rather plain piece of furniture. This cabinet really did not have much of a style to it, but it is a really nice piece of furniture. I just didn’t love it. It seemed no matter how I displayed the dishes and glasses inside they got lost in the mirrored background. My husband absolutely forbid me to paint it and believe me I thought about doing it anyway while he was a work! I am glad I listened to him and came up with another way to solve this design dilemma. This is an easy transformation and the cabinet is now the focal point of the room. This was such a simple way to update a piece of furniture without paint.
Too much crystal and no balance or color…blahh
Adjust your shelves….I did mine with a large area on the bottom and one thin shelf in the middle.
Clean shelves. Add and arrange baskets.
Add entertaining plates and dishes to baskets.
Place glasses on top. Place serving trays or short items to thin shelf.
I hope you liked this idea…Maybe you have a similar design problem and this is the answer! It was for me, I finally I love my China Cabinet~ or um Hutch!
