Thrifty Treasures/Blue Monday - Frenchy Craiglist China Cabinet

I know that in my last post I asked you all to stay tuned to see my new
buffet/hutch
(new to me that is)
that I found on Craigslist for the bargain price of only 100 buckaroos...
Can you believe it?!!
Yep... I can hardly believe it myself.... 
but it's true! 
I would have gotten this posted sooner, but have been having some puter problems... 
But I'm slowly getting things back together.

My old hutch was okay but I had decided that I wanted something a little less
country looking and a bit more frenchy looking. 

When I saw this for only a hundred bucks I was totally smitten!

I just love the richness of the wood on this hutch...
The people we bought it from said it was Mahogany.   
I TOTALLY love it with all the carving and
leaded beveled glass doors and the gorgeous carved topper.
 

I put alot of the pretties in it that I had on my old hutch
but added a few more blue and white pieces.
Full view with open doors and before I got done tweaking the arrangement it to get it just right.
Full view with doors closed and showing the gorgeous beveled leaded glass.
Hope you like it as much as I do!!

Now head on over and check out some more
over at Southern Hospitality!

Then pop in at Sally's for
too!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
Were supposed to have temps in the pleasant 70's here this week
Yippee!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Great deal you got on this! Gorgeous glass!

My goodnes, I can't believe $100, that is a steal. It certainly found a great home and you knew just how to arrange your treasures in it.

Beautiful.
