Our Latest Acquisition

K and I went shopping this weekend for some furniture and stumbled upon this little gem. We knew we needed a credenza / media center and after much looking and debate we finally settled on one that we both love.
We picked this up from the Atomica guy near Deep Ellum. Man they don't make them like they used to. When you open the drawers everything is made from solid, high quality wood - no veneering whatsoever.
We are trying to work on a mod style in our house and we are discovering a difficulty we could never have imagined. Apparently we like to put stuff on everything and once I set the blue vase on the credenza we were stuck. If you put anything else with it things start to go downhill. So we are trying to work on our minimizing skills - something hard to do we are finding. But we are enjoying the attempt.

Of course the wood wall behind is going to change but truthfully I don't feel that the two woods conflict with one another that much. But we do want to brighten the room as a whole and help set off the furniture. So there will be more changes down the line.
As soon as I put the credenza in place I suddenly - and perhaps for the first time - felt like an adult.

Sedona has discovered her new favorite spot in the house.
