Tales of a Painted Credenza

As we mentioned before, we got BUSY a few weekends ago. Seriously. It was a hurricane of DIY projects being dominated. We had the rug upholstered ottoman, the reupholstered chair, we even threw some mermaid nails...you have to be looking fresh while doing all of these projects! Doi! But our last finished DIY project was...(drumroll please!)...the credenza! This credenza was an amazing Craigs List find for under $50. Lindsay (Sadie's mom) knew it had great bones and knew it was just what her space needed. Painted that is...

Here is the fabulous after picture:

Birdie, birdie, birdie.

This was honestly a surprisingly quick project. With a little sanding down and a couple coats of paint...we were good to go. But wait there is more! (I sound like an infomercial). We definitely got some sandpaper out at the end to add a little distressing. But all in all, this is an investment of a few hours of your time. THAT IS ALL! If you have a piece of furniture that is in need of a paint job, try your hand at it.  You might surprise yourselves.

  1. So pretty painted. It really stands out more in the room. I'm visiting from the Mustard Ceiling and I'm a new follower! Thanks for visiting my blog too!

  2. I LOVE the credenza. I have a circle theme in my living room and I have coveted it just a little, sorry.
