Duck Egg Blue in My Dining Room

I found the perfect inspiration piece for a china cabinet on Pinterest!


Isn’t she lovely? I love the gray but we already have gray walls in there. Apparently I have a little obsession with Duck Egg Blue because I keep adding splashes of it all around the house. The following makes up the biggest splash yet!

Do you remember that awesome farmhouse table that my sweet hubby built for me for Christmas? It needed an equally awesome China Cabinet to keep it company 🙂 Naturally I insisted it would be the perfect gift for our 10th anniversary from my hubs. He reluctantly agreed.

@ over 8 feet tall and 5 feet wide – – – Here is what we came up with together…


The idea was to put some burlap screens behind the glass and hide the bottom two shelves. The burlap @ Joanns yesterday was seriously lacking so for now this is what we’ve got. We might still do burlap or there was some interesting eyelet looking lace or we may even leave it as is. What do you think? I just liked the idea of not everything being exposed. Momma needs to hide a mess sometimes you know?!


We used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on the chairs before we glazed them but since this was fresh wood (hubby built it from scratch i.e. rough cut lumber) we used Behr Enamel with primer in it from The Home Depot.


I robbed the adjacent foyer for a couple new pieces of art and we made a floating log shelf from a beech tree limb (love that smooth bark) to hang on the wall next to the china cabinet. More on that unique shelf to come!


Oh my goodness how I love the colors in my dining room now! Who’s ready for a feast?


Wonder if I should try out some shades for my chandelier now?
