5. Sewing cabinet
6. A living room cabinet vignette. 
7. Display your pretty pottery collection.
8. Paint it black and showcase your ironstone.

 10. Add wire to the doors for a
unique birdcage.

Chalk paint is the easiest.

  4. Great post with tons of great ideas! I just bought a china cabinet from craigslist and kept the bottom for my dining room and the top part as a bookcase in my daughters room. Just have to find time to paint it and possibly add some feet!

  5. Oh my so many great ideas for using china cabinets! If only the Charmer was bigger I would love to have one in the bathroom, but gosh it's barely big enough for both of us to be in it! I also love the bird cage idea, how cool is that!

  6. Thank you for sharing. I have 4 china cabinets in various rooms in my home. All painted with chalk paint. You are right in saying you can use them for any collection or display.

  7. We repurposed one as a built-in in our butler's pantry.

  11. Herpes is a serious and recurring disease which can't be cured through drugs or injections by the doctors but the best way to deal with Herpes is by taking natural herbs medicine for it,  I have read about DR NOGADU the great herbalist doctor who cure me from herpes  with his powerful herbal medicine.  i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs from God! After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via UPS SPEED POST and it got to me after 3 days! i used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured! It was really like a dream but i was  so happy! you should contact him for his herbal medicine because i am a living testimony and i was cured of herpes and his medicine is legit.  I sent him what he requested and he sent me his medicine which I took for 2 good weeks and today I am out here with a negative result. When I went for the test I was so happy after going through his medication. you can reach him through his email: or call/whatsapp number:+2347010627760 he will help you out.
