Credenza Update

Whew! We worked most of the weekend on the credenza and I am happy to report that we are almost done!

As you can see, we painted all of the interior pieces separately prior to installation. That's A LOT of square feet, so it took longer to paint than a dresser or table (my typical painting jobs) but the hard part (the interior) is done! Now we just have to paint the outside and install the interior shelves.

In addition to new wood, we used a few of the legs from when we shortened our counter height chairs to dining height. 4 cabinet doors for (2 for the sides and 2 for the middle dividers) 

Also, in the middle we installed tracks for pullout shelves (removed for painting) for the Silhouette Cameo and scanner. The hole is for wires to go through ...

We got one of six shelves for flat storage installed last night and decided to call it quits when our drill batteries died. 

Annabelle was getting a little bored too!

I love how it is coming together and can't wait to see it finished!  

Hope you had a great weekend!

  1. Haha - Do you know how many things I have worked on that have paw prints on them too! Love it

    1. Normally Annabelle likes staying upstairs, but yesterday she was curious to see what we were doing. Luckily it was just dust and it wiped up no problem! :)

  2. I love watching all of your different ideas come together! I have been planning to build a desk big enough for my husband and I to share but I want the legs of the table to be bookshelves. If you have any advice for me I would greatly appreciate it. This will be my first furniture building project. Wish me luck :)

    1. Hi Jessica! Thank you :) Thinking back on what we've built, we always use screws instead of nails, it helps make it sturdier and locks everything in place. If you can't hide the screw, you can always counter sink the hole so you can easily fill it with wood filler. Also, check out craigslist for two small matching bookshelves. Let me know how it goes!


Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts! I love hearing what you think! :)
