Hello friends, my name is Karen and I was a big faker. I did not totally finish the credenza before I posted it. Remember, it was cold and rainy when I worked on it? I just got frustrated before the inside of the doors were painted and we put them back on unfinished, paint drips and all.

It looked finished unless the center doors were opened but it has been bugging me. I would have so embarrassed if someone would have opened the doors. We are about to start showing the house and I know that even though the credenza is not part of the sale, people are curious. ( I am when I see custom furniture!)

I bought a sample of Revival Mahogany because the quart is at Star Hill, sanded and painted the doors brown.


Next I used spray adhesive to adhere burlap to the painted doors. Then I glued a wide ribbon around the edge of the burlap and FINALLY I hammered in some left over nailhead trim into the corners.

Much better. Feel free to snoop when you come look at our house now!
