One of the *extras* that resulted from putting in the wormy chestnut countertops was trading a cabinet for open shelving, which I made from old wood I found here. I really am not missing the cupboard space, plus I'm really enjoying having extra display space for my seasonal favorites.
My mom's homemade jams and jellies will not be here long but they look pretty:-)
I brought out some of my Hull and McCoy "Brown Drip" pieces as I just love the brown this time of year. I also added some vintage fruit-themed needlepoints from a family friend. The lunchroom sign was in the old Hazelwood Elementary School my parents went to.
I definitely don't regret taking out the cabinet.
And I can't wait to change this out to something totally different for Christmas!
