This is an amazingly huge (90") credenza. It is as heavy as it is large. But it will turn into a wonderful console for a Huge Flat screen!

I painted it our favorite red, with accents of black on the far left where the components will go, and I painted black inside the center behind the doors.
The hardware is wonderful and will show up great when they are painted oil rubbed bronze.

This is it. I am so proud it was a sad and lonely piece no one really wanted it or had a vision for it. We have had two clients already put it on hold and I am hoping that when I go in on Tuesday, it will have sold.

Our store is in trouble in these troubled times. We have had to close an extra day, now we are closed Sunday and Monday. Hopefully things will turn around with the new year. We can all hope.

Happy New Year 2009

It is a new year and we are starting off with a very nice piece.

It is a desk/bookcase. The wood on the piece doesn't match? Hmmm the top part with the leaded glass doors has a dark wood and the rest is much lighter. Then at the bottom the wood is darker again. Plus some of the "wood" isn't really wood at all! Needless to say it was on the floor for over 4 months and didn't sell.

Here is the finished piece. We painted it black distressed it then waxed it. I think it turned out really spectacular!

It has some interesting parts on it the leaded glass at the top is really very nice. Then the little round wooden handles or pulls I guess you would call them.
