hi i'm ann myrick and today i'm going to showyou how to arrange your china cabinet. now one thing that i am big on is not puttingglass, sorry, with glass. this has a glass door and when i see china cabinets that onlyhave, many many times what people will do is people will not add weight. glasses, clearglasses do not have any weight with them so if you put glass in your china cabinet youare not creating weight, you are not creating interest. what i like to do with my chinacabinets or the ones that have glass is i like to put solid colors interesting pieces,bigger pieces, in it to create interest and to give color. i have a collection of mccoyand what i did on this one, you'll see that i can barely see it but there is an old mirrorup here that reflects the yellow back into


it and then what i did is i grouped like colors.when you have a collection that has a lot of different colors to it you want your eyeto be able to move over it smoothly and if you had a yellow one and a white one and agreen one and a yellow one you would be really choppy and so what i did in this is i grouped,i put all the colors in it but i grouped them together so as you are looking at it you seethe yellow and your eye goes all the way across and you see the white and you see the greensand blues. you can put books and really put antique books and a few bigger pieces. i don'tlike to put a lot of little things in china cabinets. you can use a china cabinet as anorganizational piece but just play with it and make it look interesting. this one a lotof times i'll leave the door open and then


i'll hang a picture or i'll hang somethingon the door but then also you can shut it and when you shut it you see all the pieceswithout seeing just clear glass. this is ann myrick and those are ways to work with yourchina cabinet.
