Dated to Delightfully Vintage China Cabinets

Before & After

We’ve seen them far too many times. Those chunky, clunky completely outdated China cabinets that drag down the decor vibe in most rooms. Luckily, there are DIYers in this world who see the pretty potential of these “diamonds in the rough”, like Chrissie Wright of Chrissie’s Collections, who masterfully transforms furniture into very light, happy pieces of design candy. With a vintage vision, eye for detail, and a touch of silliness approach, your home can also be delighted with a beautiful “after” piece like this.
