Today I have the privileged of debuting not only a fresh piece but also a fellow creative! Posts like these are some of my favorites - when two creatives join forces to make something together. I connected with Cory of Modern South via Instagram and jumped at the chance to work with her on a juicy collaboration.
Cory and I share a mutual love of color and abstract art. When we were looking for an excuse to work together, I had the perfect piece in mind to show off her ethereal landscapes art. I found this four door credenza without a leg to stand on and the sweet quatrefoil detailing was so endearing that I couldn't pass it up.
Plus I was jonesing to do something in a buttery gray again.
The classic lines of this piece called for a feminine and glam look - something a little softer than I normally debut in the garage shop.
The paint color I went with was Hailstorm Gray by Behr Marquee. In person, it's almost blue, almost purple, almost green and therefore an all-around very mysterious neutral.
It actually did pain me a bit to paint the burled wood inserts on the doors but there were too many areas of damage that needed repair and I just couldn't picture a two-toned look. I think because the two-tone is more indicative of a modern streamlined piece that wouldn't fit a piece like this with more decorative details.
For her new gams, I found these metal 7" legs. Their sleek lines help modernize the credenza so it can appeal to a wider variety of home decor styles.
The piece's original floret-ed knobs complimented the quatrefoil design on the doors too perfectly to give up so I gave the legs our favorite faux-gold finish to match.
Inside is a cabinet on the left
and a set of drawers on the right.
The navy and blush paired with the gray and gold of their piece reminds me of a quiet sunrise.
I kept a relatively neutral color scheme with the rest of my decorative items: dried eucalyptus in a white ceramic vase, a couple stacks of books, white picture frames and touches of glass and gold.
