Blue Dining Room Cabinet

Remember my dining room cabinet? Here it was last Christmas.

I loved the white, but I wanted a change.

After browsing Pinterest for ideas, I chose this gorgeous shade of deep blue from the Dulux range called Shindig.  I applied 2 coats, followed by a coat of clear varnish.  And kept the inside white.

When I restyled the inside, I grabbed all kitchen related items, instead of a mishmash of stuff. 
I decided to be really brave and add a bit more colour with the different kettles.

And of course I kept my wire inside the doors.

I also added a darker walnut stain to my Cafe de Paris artwork.

And while we are in the dining room, I found this cute little bluish grey vase yesterday that is perfect for our dining table.

And after a few days of looking at my new blue cabinet, I can say I'm very happy with it. I absolutely love the colour. It's not too bright and provides a great contrast against the white walls.

AND, I'm genuinely finding the blue additions, to my otherwise very white house, quite relaxing.
