I'VE BEEN WAITING ALL YEAR

Last year on the day after Christmas, we headed off to Burbank to visit my husband's Dad.While there he decided it was time for me to have the Johnson's Brothers "Friendly Village" china that my Mother in Law had promised me before she died. Needless to say, I was ecstatic.

When we got home I bought an old china cabinet. It was brown and ugly. See this post.




I can't really figure out
how to display it all.





(That's also her high chair
that she used as a child.)
















There is tons of it.
I think at least 25 place settings.










I also got the little Hummel nativity set from her. Too cute!

I can't quit stopping and enjoying it whenever I walk
past the dining room.
Thank you Grandma Z.

It IS BEAUTIFUL! So painting question. Did you have to sand it first or just prime it and paint? What paint did you use. I have to do mine, but I feel like it will take forever so I have been procrastinating...for years. :)
