Out of Sight Out of Mind?

Okay, I'll admit it... I have a problem with cabinets.  All types: small ones, old ones, new ones, used ones.  I love them!  I load them up with everything!!  It all started with having a new home, with little "character."  (That, coupled with having had 3 children within 3 1/2 years of moving here!) I've got a hankering for these babies because they 

1. add some character
2.  hide all the clutter

Here's just a taste:



           Curbside Rescue
I'm beginning to think that maybe, just maybe, the spouse has a point, I do have a problem with old furniture   cabinets.  
 The grey china cabinet in the second row, (a.k.a. "Aunt Lucy's Cabinet"- it really isn't from any Aunt Lucy, it's a Restore purchase.   The spouse hates  it.  It was GOLD, I mean super 70's Gold.  I painted and glazed the outsidepainted the inside a cream and stopped there.  I had a problem with how to make it less "Aunt Lucy" looking.  Just last week, I spotted some grey and white striped wrapping paper in Marshall's and decided to put that in the back for some eclectic flair as a solution.  The spouse says the only solution is the curb.  Not happening.  Now I'm on the hunt for some new hardware and I think it'll be fine! (One drawer pull is currently in my purse for measurement purposes!) 
So what I really need is to eliminate some clutter.  I vow to not buy, rescue, or receive in any way, another cabinet, for a little while?!
