After getting the table positioned in the dining room I decided on big plans for this lonely little corner.
I had Strider take these fragile boxes personally (not on the moving truck) to the house in their own special trip. I am really excited about the prospect of having my wedding china out where it's usable instead of boxed up in a crawl space! I still remember the day we (I) picked them out. Greenbrier by Noritake. Ahhhhh, hello lovely. We registered for 8 settings. We received 6 place settings for our wedding, and were able to afford just one more on our own. Grand total of 7. They were $50 ea in 1996. :(
BUT a years ago I stumbled upon an Ebay auction for 16 unopened place settings of our (now retired) pattern at a killer price. I snatched them right up. Yes, folks. I now have service for 23! They deserve a proper home, dontcha think?
After much searching in the classifieds, and finding WAY too high of prices, I found this great piece - an oak corner china cabinet. The seller listed it for $27. I thought maybe it was a typo, and she meant $270. Nope.
Strider picked it up for me and the lady only asked for $20! Twenty buckeroos.
Jedi and Bugs helped me paint. Strider added a top coat.
5 cans of Canyon Black spray paint later? Awesomeness!
