Captivating Credenza: Step 3

Have you been wondering what color Todd chose for the credenza? Well, he and his wife looked back at the mood board that inspired their purchase and decided on Caviar (SW 6990). They purchased one quart of Duration Home paint in Semi-Gloss and got to work. Todd says he used one coat of Caviar on most of the piece, but two coats on the top for a shinier, more durable finish. So fancy!

(Whenever you’re working on a piece of furniture like this, work from the top down.)

Captivating Credenza: Step 2

It’s almost ready to paint! Todd took out the drawers, taped off the edges and got to work. He decided to leave the drawers as they were, to keep that fresh, midcentury look, with a modern painted body perfect for his early 1900s home. And before painting, he coated the credenza with some All Surface Primer from Sherwin-Williams.

Whenever you’re working on repainting or refinishing a piece of furniture, always make sure to use a primer before painting. It creates a smooth surface, helps the paint stick and prevents chipping, so your renewed furniture will last and last!
