This is so adorable. I love this country chic look for the kitchen especially.

I really like this project. I have done a similar one in the past. I had chalk painted an old gun cabinet, replaced the glass with hardware cloth and sold it in my antique mall booth. It sold fairly quickly. I would love to try a smaller size one soon, but that means I have to find a likely contender. The light blue color of this piece is really pretty.

I love the look of chicken wire for a country look, this is a great example of its use too!
