So…I have been mulling over what to with my mid mod credenza I bought off craigslist last week. After closer inspection there are quite a few places that are deeply gouged and beyond refinishing (but for 45 bucks, who can complain!). The piece is not worth the expense of replacing the veneer, so I need a more…creative solution. I still want to show off as much woodgrain as possible, but use paint to cover up the damaged parts.
I am very inspired by these angular block prints right now. I love the idea of combining this painted block style and the natural woodgrain of the furniture.

I love these amazing prints by Esther Stewart They give me such a calm feeling…I’m going to need to channel that once I start this project…especially if Brian offers to help…(note to self ~ “teaching moment, this is a teaching moment Samantha”…)

Fabulous wall pattern!! This was from an awesome room makeover by one of my favorite bloggers Mandi on her blog Vintage Revivals. Check her out!
I’m excited to start pulling colors and designing the pattern for the face of the credenza. But first, my not-so-favorite-part, stripping and sanding the old finish away. What an exciting weekend I have in store… ;)
