New Credenza

Early in March Dan and I went down to Grand Rapids looking for a hutch cabinet.  Although I knew I didn't want a "china" cabinet with the top part having glass.  I decided to check out what the manufacturer of our chairs had to offer and to my surprise they offered this credenza and it was just what I wanted!

 In the middle of April it came in and here it is just delivered.  It's solid maple and made in Massachusetts.

 It has adjustable shelves and the wine rack is removable.  The drawers are deep and will hold plenty!

 This is how it looked prior to the changes.  I sold the etegare and the plate rack is in storage.  Having a hard time letting go of it.  I also sold the black table that's under the plate rack.

 We came across this picture at a furniture store.  It was neglected and displayed in a window and had gotten a little moisture damage to the back.

 I inquired about it and after evaluating it they sold it to me for $50!  We just cleaned up the back a bit, glued the paper back down in a couple of spots and it's fine!

I ordered this clock from on-line.  I liked that it was large and also oval.

 I'm experimenting with decorating it.  I had these two vases from Pottery Barn and I felt they had the right look to go with the picture.

 I found this big bottle which says Chardonnay on it at T.J.Maxx and thought it would fit in with the wine rack.

This is removable but I don't think I'll need to!

 As I said I'm experimenting with items on top.

 I created this last year ("here") and had it set aside and thought why not try it!

 I already had the two wall sconces and was glad I could use them again.

I'm real happy with it and appreciate the extra storage it's going to provide. 

Dishing It & Digging It


  1. Such a beautiful piece and such fabulous storage. I love it.

  2. Love the clean lines, and the color of the wood
    looks like perfect match to the dinette set.
    With the added bonus of the storage.
    I noticed you removed the drapes from the slider.
