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.
love and blessings~
I'm joining these linky parties:
Love the addition of the chicken wire!ReplyDelete
Me too, Lori! Thank you!Delete
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*ReplyDelete
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. :)
Thanks, Gee! I can't believe what a big difference it made! I stray away from French Country every once in a while but always come back, too.Delete
love and blessings~

Thanks so much, Carrie! I will try to be there!Delete
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!!ReplyDelete
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
Thank you, Susan!Delete
Your cabinet is beautiful! I would be so happy if you would share this at my Making broken Beautiful party this week! I would be honored if you would help to make this party grow :0)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the invitation! I joined your party. :) Have a wonderful weekend!Delete
Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!
Thank you, Cindy!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
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.Delete
I absolutely love the chicken wire. Really looks incredible. I will be featuring this tonight at my Fall into fall party that opens at 8pm EST. Please stop by and pick up an I've Been Featured button. Thanks. http://diybydesign.blogspot.comReplyDelete
