How can I turn this credenza into a beach cottage piece?
Beach decor is usually shades of blue and crisp clean white. So, you could paint the credenza light blue and the top white. To take it a step further, you could decoupage palm trees on the front.
If you use chalk paint you don’t even have to sand or do much prep!
Paint it white! Also, here are some credenza makeover ideas:
and here are some beach houses for inspiration:
Hi ! I would cut beadboard and glue them down to cover the center doors . Then paint the whole thing with 2 coats of chalk paint . First coat a blue gray color , then white or off white . Then lightly sand here and there to let a little of the bottom color show through . Then use sealing wax in clear to protect your work . Maybe add some beachy drawer pulls !
MaggieMae: I should "shabby chic" it in light green or blue or white... distress as if it's been exposed to sea air! Use sea glass knobs on the piece.
