Building my White Kitchen Collection from Thrifty Finds!

I've been collecting some cute white crockery to display in my open shelves in the kitchen.  Here are a few I recently got at some yard sales.

I love this little set of 2 cups, a sugar and milk bowl.  The white lace on the sides is so pretty. 

They say Crown Ming Fine China on the bottom so I'm guessing they are might be semi-valuable. :)

I have no idea about what is the best China or what is valuable, I just pick the items I like the look of, after all, it's not like anyone is going to be lifting them up and scrutinising them.   
Having said that, it is nice to see anything made in England or the words Fine China.  Or so my mum would tell me. :)  Do you have any tips in picking crockery?

I love the lines on this set too.

And how gorgeous are these! Love them.

Sideboard Restyled!

I was been debating painting this sideboard for a while.  I purchased the original piece off eBay and it was in almost immaculate condition.  To paint it felt like an injustice.  Here is how it used to look ...

Then I saw so many white sideboards that looked amazing and decided it was my piece of furniture now and to make it mine, it would need my special touch ... with a paintbrush. :)

I didn't want to distress the edges, but I do plan to paint the top white as well.

Here's a before and after ...

 I love how bright and beautiful it looks painted white and am happy with my decision. 

I'll be working on this piece next ....
