China Hutch Re-do

Wow, it certainly has been a long time since I posted anything on here. But I have still been reading everyone's blog and keeping up in blog land.
I finally figured out what to do with my china cabinet that certainly was not prim at all. The above picture is what is used to look like..ugly but served it's purpose I guess. I took the glass doors off, added bead board to the back and the sides, sanded it all down and painted. The back got painted a tan color and the rest black. Lightly distressed it and I love the way it turned out. It is decorated for Christmas right now. I need to add to my Folk-art collection of not have many, so it looks a little bare right now.
One of my many projects on the list is to add beadboard to my kitchen walls to cover up that wallpaper country for my taste now. Hope everyone has a Happy Holiday Season!

Need Help

Can someone please tell me the name of this quilt pattern? I have searched & searched the web for a pattern and while I have found some similar to it, not the exact match. I have even written to the company where I found it at and they don't even know the name of the pattern.

RedWare Crock

I bought this redware crock from Janae of Cozy Coops Corner
She is selling some of her prims and I was lucky enough to get this from her. It is way bigger then I was expecting and I can't wait to get my fireplace mantle done as I think that will be the perfect spot for this beauty.

Some new bowls

I bought these bowls at an antique mall for $4.00 I think ( was a few months I've slowly been working on them. I got all of the little ones done and I'm halfway done with the big one.
Here are 3 of the little ones finished. I did the usual thing...sand, base coat black, paint top coat, sand lightly and then add stain. I wasn't too sure how the white one was going to turn out as this is the first time I used antique white, but after adding the stain I love it, and it is my favorite one. The 4th one I did in mustard, but haven't found a spot for that one yet. I think I am going to do the big one in the antique white also.

Cabinet make-over

I bought this cabinet for my bathroom from Target a few years ago and while I did like it at first it just itsn't prim enough. So I did a make-over on it and love the way it looks now.

I sanded it down and painted it black and then distressed it a bit. I left the door off and like how it looks with out it. The towels, my hair dryer, etc. are hidden in the drawers instead of on the shelf like they used to be. I also re-did the jars with new labels that I printed out and glued on them.
