The stars definitely shine for this mid-century modern beauty. This vintage Broyhill Premier Emphasis credenza has been given a new life while keeping it's amazing retro feel. The wood was cleaned and refreshed and then touched up in spots with General Finishes gel stain in Antique Walnut. It was then painted in a custom blend of GF Milk paint in Basil and Patina. Trim areas and detailed insets were painted in GF chalk paint in French Vanilla. Retro starbust stencils were drawn and cut and then painted in French Vanilla also. The beautiful vintage wooden drawers and shelves were cleaned, refreshed and touched up as needed with Antique Walnut stain as well. The entire piece was then top coated in GF High Performance Top Coat in flat which provides a very slight sheen and will offer extra protection.
