I bought an old china cabinet from my neighbor Amy for $40.00 (thanks Amy). I plan to start sanding & painting it sometime this weekend. Im painting it the same color as my kitchen cabinets (swiss mocha by Behr). Its a white tone, similar to the hutch pictured below.
Last week, I bought a Martha Stewart vintage green paint (called sea glass) to cover the inside back wall of the cabinet.
Sea glass color tones in the picture below, blogged by jadeite kate look similar to the color I choose. This picture is in this months issue of Better Homes & Gardens.

And, slowly but surely, I will fill it with jade-ite & vintage dishes.
