A few years ago, I purchased a China/Display cabinet for all of my new china and stemware that I received as wedding gifts. I bought it at Target, so you can imagine that the quality is not exactly up to par. But I absolutely LOVE it, and refused to part with it. So, when the thin shelves started bowing, I had horrible visions of waking up to all of my beautiful China in pieces on the floor. This is where my husband comes in. He built new, sturdy shelves for my cabinet, and while he was at it, installed lights under them!!! Now my things are actually "on display", and my hours of "staging" them have not gone to waste! I would recommend accent lights to anyone that has a China cabinet! The only downside is that now I actually have to start checking for dust:)
If you have questions about how these were installed, just let me know. I will have to ask him, as I don't really have any idea :)
The finished product!
Now you can SEE all of my pieces :)
