Thrifty Thursday: Credenza (before and AFTER)

I’m excited to share my 50 dollar thrift store find? It’s finally finished, take a look!

I couldn’t be more happy with the transformation.

I wish I could say this was a DIY weekend project, but in full to partial disclosure, this post technically does not qualify as a Thrifty Thursday post. I paid someone to paint and refinish it for me

…and it was worth it!

    I love it! It is SO beautiful! And you know what? Sometimes it's more affordable to pay someone else to do something because your time is so valuable.

    Wow that's gorgeous! I've been wanting to go thrifting and refinishing furniture and this gives me more inspiration to do so! I love the pics hanging above it too.

    That is such a great piece! It turned out perfect. I love the color.

    I totally would have paid someone to do it too after tackling my $50 orange dresser :)

    I just had someone do a blue armoire for me and it was worth every penny!

    It's fabulous! There's no shame in paying someone to do something that you don't want to do or don't have time to do. That's what makes the world go 'round.

    That is so amazing. you can't see the beautiful design until it was painted. And could you have chosen a better color? I THINK NOT!

    OH. MY. GOD! I love love love it and I'm thru the roof jealous of this piece!!! Seriously…gorgeous! What is that colour?? Will you share?

    It's gorgeous! I'm so envious! I want one!( stomping foot in tantrum)! Can you share the paint brand and color? I have what I believe is a tip somewhat related: I stumbled upon a site, after wanting a $2,000.00 craft/kitchen island from Pottery Barn-a free site called : Knock Of where the woman drew up the plans and posted them for free, along with many others. I think it's awesome. Another woman posted her daughter's room make-over she did herself using free wooden flats(?) from shipping area of store. Check it out!

    OMG! Gorgeous, just gorgeous! What a find! A true diamond in the rough. Love the blue and definitely worth paying someone to refinish it.

    Would you be willing to share who you used to refinish your project? I’m looking to refinish several pieces and I love how your credenza turned out. It’s beautiful! So is the rest of your living room!
