I happened to pop into a thrift store back in April and found this outdated but stately office credenza. It was higher then a standard dresser and had large, deep drawers. It was well made and it was certainly straight out of the 70's-80's. But, I loved it's storage capacity and the height and framed out drawers would help this piece transfer from the office to a bedroom, a nursery or with the right top (I vote for a butcher block top!), a kitchen island.. I'd store my pots and pans and dish-ware in those drawers! So I bought it.. and I gots the back pain to prove it. ;)
I wanted to give this cabinet a little modern flair. So, before I started the painting process, we removed the old hardware, filled in the existing hardware holes with wood filler and then sanded them down.
I perused D. Lawless Hardware for just the right pulls. They have such an amazing selection AND I couldn't believe the prices that were attached to them- so affordable! It was really hard to choose, but in the end I fell in love with these sleek 12" Colossus Dee Pulls in Antique Copper.
Once the old holes we're filled we began the measuring process to drill the new holes. I always like to do this step before I paint in the event I mis-measure and need to re-drill. (See those first two drawers?) Yes, that happened!
After a fresh coat of Queenstown Gray, we we're ready to pull it altogether. Painting the cabinet dark grey made the hardware the star of the show.
