Before and After: A Mid-Century Credenza Gets a Makeover

I have to admit, typically, I’m not a huge fan of painting over mid-century furniture. In this case, however, I really like the result. It feels like a piece of art to me – a painting and a credenza rolled into one.   

This Craigslist credenza, that Samantha Pattillo upcycled on DIY Network’s Made + Remade, is clearly a labor of love. Once you go through all the steps, which can be found in two parts, Part 1 and Part 2, you really appreciate the end result.
