old hotel credenza made into entryway or bed bench.

This is what I had to start with.... got it on the cheap but could see the potential. It's 6' long and had huge drawers.
definitely before!
Painted the entire piece with a thin coat of Rustoleum white. Sometimes oil base is the way to go. Just don't like the clean up.
Modern, neutral and soothing fabric.
Added 2 layers of dense foam cut to size and glued down with headliner adhesive.
new hardware and more distressing.
Since I used oil based, it tough so I didn't have to apply a topcoat. Will only get better with age! Had to replace one drawer slide but the are cheap!
DONE! $40 total cost and appx. 6 hours labor.
Ready to be enjoyed by whomever buys it from my booth. Love it but no room for it here. I have 1 more to do and want to go with red and ornge tones. I think it needs storage baskets slid in underneath it for shoes... what do you think?
HELP... I'm surroundef by do-overs!
In it's new but temporary home.
The End....
