Love and Chicken Wire

Remember when I found this wonderful china cabinet for a mere $100 and then painted it?  I wanted to put chicken wire in the doors and my husband preferred the glass.

Well, I just dropped it but did not put the glass doors back in.  I don't know if you've noticed, but there's been nothing in the doors.

This morning I asked him if we had any chicken wire.  He said we didn't.  I asked how much chicken wire cost.  He looked on his phone and told me $10 for more than I would ever need.  We both looked at the china cabinet.

He didn't have any classes to teach today so in a while he got dressed and left...a little later than usual.  I was puttering around the kitchen when he came walking back in with a new roll of chicken wire.  lol

He said, "Is this what you want?"  I laughed and said, "Yes!"  And he went off to work!

I added the chicken wire to my cabinet with a staple gun.

I love it!  I love him.
Happy Thursday!

  2. I simply luv chicken wire in a hutch. We had it in the hutch in our old home, and some of the cabinet doors in the kitchen. In this house, we went Tuscan instead of French Country when we moved in and sold EVERYTHING!!! *silent scream*
    Now we, and I mean me :) have been slowly moving back the last 2 years. So, yes... I foresee some chicken wire making a comeback. Thanks for the inspiration Lynda. :)

  10. I love it! I inherited a piece very similar to yours except that it has two doors instead of the three yours has. I painted it with Annie Sloan Old White last winter and backed the piece with toile. I don't know why I didn't think of changing out the glass in the doors to chicken wire, but now that I have seen yours, I will. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  13. I love the chicken wire in your cabinet doors! I have often thought about changing out my glass for chicken wire in my cabinet too. It doesn't look like it would be easy to do though. I love the texture it gives your cabinet and instantly makes it less formal.

    1. Thank you, Kelly! It was very easy. You need cutters to trim the chicken wire and a staple gun. It took me about half an hour.
