I was reading this fun post from a cute blog called A Little Green Notebook over the weekend and I just had to share it with you guys! The author, Jenny, converted this ugly old credenza into a totally fabulous piece of furniture, just by painting it red. (For those of you who don’t know, I am obsessed with credenzas and can’t wait until I live in an apartment big enough to house one!)
Check out the before and after photos…

Isn’t it adorable?! And get this— she used spray paint!
My mom and I did a similar project last year. We painted an old entertainment center a cranberry red and then gave it an antique finish. It was definitely labor intensive, but it was super inexpensive and now my mom has a totally one-of-a-kind piece of furniture in her home!
What do you think of Jenny’s credenza? Have you ever re-vamped a piece of furniture by painting it? Do you have any other tips for making old furniture feel brand new? Share your experience in the comments section!
