Recently, a beautiful pair of credenzas came into the life of artist Wholman. Battered, beaten, but with noble bones, the pieces were salvageable and the artist went to work repairing them. However, it was their the outdated colors, broken doors, and damaged tops that made them eyesores, so with a little scrap wood and a little love, the artist remodeled them with salvaged old-growth pine tops and doors made from shop offcuts. Now the low-slung office beauties can enjoy another few decades of use. Wholman also detailed the entire process at his Instructables site for others to get inspired and build a pair of their own!
