Sneak Peek: Mid Century Credenza

Remember when I posted about those free chairs?
I spy with my little eye, something that is awesome... right there... behind them!

Those cabinets/credenzas were rescued by my boss a year or so ago, and have been languishing by the back door since then. They are just too great to throw away, but alas, no one had time to spend on them... until me.

Of course I jumped at the chance to take them when they were offered to me.
Do I have time to restore them? No. Will I make time? Hell yes!

There are two cabinets. Here are the deets:
1) is complete with doors - small scratches and a leg to fix.
2) is missing doors - has a corner that needs to be firmed up and some scratches to fix.

The orange/red laminate doors need a good clean, but are rather lovely.
And of course, our retro carpet makes another cameo.

In order to add or make doors for the second credenza, I will have to find sliding hardware that will work with the existing metal rails.

I also just love this simple, round recessed cabinet pulls. I believe they are copper.

Stay tuned to see how this one turns out!

    1. ... And the wait is over. See the next blog.

  2. It turned out so good.

    And I was about to ask if I could see a better picture of your retro carpet - now I don't need to! IT'S SO GOOD.
