Black Lacquered Love

A couple years back, I had just started refinishing furniture and became a regular each morning perusing Craigslist.  As luck would have it, I stumbled across an amazing find, this mid-century credenza for, get this....$20!! Yep.  I called within seconds and made the trip an hour away to pick her up.  Seriously.  She is gorgeous.  And heavy!!  I kept her in my garage while I finished and took on other projects.  I just wasn't sure if I wanted to keep her stain or paint her entirely.

 I thought about keeping the same finish and just retouching some areas, but as time has passed by, I am seriously thinking of black.  Some shiny, lacquered, kill me black.

As the kids are getting out of school tomorrow, we're off for the weekend with family for a few days at the beach.  I know I'll be tackling this beautiful piece when I come back.  Hopefully I won't be too relaxed to come home and work on her.  

Happy Hump Day Friends!

  1. Love the natural color, but a really high gloss black with dramatic handle pulls would be so dramatic!
