Two Story Cottage

China Cabinet Project + Dining Room Lighting

Dear Friends,

I’m not going to be hanging any wallpaper on the ceiling in this house for now, but I still wanted to have some fun with my favorite decorating tool. The china cabinet is front and center in the dining room so I decided it deserved a wallpaper update. It also acts as a divider between the two sides or our dining space combination.


If you remember, we are trying to get a buy one get one free with our dining room by including a piano and sitting area. Ambitious to say the least.  Maybe crazy is a better term.


I felt like the china cabinet needed to be a focal point and now it is. I hung the wallpaper using command strips.  I tried two other versions of tape first but ultimately the paper fell. Now it is super secure and has been in place for over a month. The best part is that I can change my mind some day and not ruin my nice cabinet.


Yes, that is the exact same wallpaper I used at the old house.  Hey, at least it is in a new spot.  I’m boring but I figured there was no need to reinvent the wheel when I loved it and had an extra roll or two.

I decided to fill the shelves with almost all glass and crystal so as not to make them too busy with the patterned backdrop.


Also, I thought I’d show you our new chandelier. I needed something that wasn’t heavy because this space is going to be full of furnishings. I had to hang it high because it isn’t over a table so I’m glad it ended up working.

It is the Lourdes Chandelier from Ballard Designs. I just love it to be honest. I knew I wanted it and I saved a few months of Craig’s List and consignment proceeds for it.


I promise I will show you more of the room coming together. I’m saving for a banquette but I won’t make you wait until I have the funds for that.

I highly recommend the wallpaper backdrop because it took less than 30 minutes, is removable, and makes an impact.  All desirable qualities in my book!





  1. I have a china cabinet that will probably be moved to a new location in my living room/dining room. I want to update it rather than filling it with my old collection of rose tea cups and such. I am kinda over those now 🙂 I wouldn’t want to permanently do anything to my cabinet so the removable wallpaper is a great idea – thank you!
