Mid Century Marvels

Two toned Mid Century Modern furniture is quickly becoming one of my absolute favorite looks. You too? I thought so. I just love the contrast of the white paint against the wood and how it brings out all the fabulous details.

You may have remembered when I scored this little guy a couple weeks ago and I think it’s probably the cutest little thing I’ve ever seen.

I’m getting ready to tackle it but I’m waiting for my General Finished Gel Stain to get here. Please hurry! In the mean time, I thought I would do some research and find some inspiration for this little one.

All of these are amazing and I know I want to stick to the two toned look using white paint. I might mix things up a little bit though 😉 Stay tuned!

    Hi Bre: Thanks for including my credenza in your collection. I’ve found this color combo to work sooo well, especially on large mid-century credenzas. I’m in the midst of writing a post on another credenza… this time, it’s light gray with two shades of stain for the drawers. It’s alway fun to work on these pieces. I hope you enjoy your project!! Thanks again.
