I told you earlier that my husband actually made this in high school (see his initials at the top?) and it has been at his parents house since he made it. I always told him that when we finally got our house that I wanted it in my kitchen to hold all my pretty dishes. Well folks, that day has finally come. After 6 years of waiting for this baby its finally mine!
Over the years I have fallen in love with milk glass and I have slowly been collecting. Hobnail is my favorite and it has taken me 6 years to collect as much as I have. Its pretty hard to come by these days so I love that I now have a special place to put it all! (Don't mind all the food on my counter. We were about to have a dinner party and I was too lazy to clear it off for the pictures. Sometimes I forget I have to take good pictures...)
I love how it looks in my kitchen. It really brightens up my space. Aaaaand now I have more spaces to decorate for holidays. :) (I'm sure my husband is rolling his eyes as he is reading this...)
Close up time!
Its embarrassing to tell you how long it took me to get this to look right. I arranged and re-arranged these dishes probably a thousand times. I feel a little badly that it took almost an hour of my life to get this how I want it....but not that bad. :)
I love that I have some really unique pieces that my mother-in-law found for me for Christmas. I was so surprised!
Its also nice that it has the doors on the bottom so I can put all my other serving dishes that don't quite fit in, in the bottom.
If you don't remember these candlesticks I used them on my Christmas table setting and these new gold ones almost put me over the edge. Ah! I am such an old lady at heart.
Ok one last before and after just for dramatic effect:
Thanks for humoring me in all my silly musings and taking the time to look at a silly piece of furniture that makes me happy. :)
