Pending Credenza Project

This is a Thomas O'brien piece that I picked up at Target several years ago. It has good lines, but it isn't the most well made piece of furniture. For sturdiness I give it high scores, but the finish leaves something to be desired. The veneer is thin and easily chipped. It doesn't get a lot of use, as in opening and closing of the drawers and doors (or dusting), but if it did it would probably be a wreck. It has the darkest finish of anything in my home. I liked the dark stain a few years ago, and I actually used to have a few more pieces from this line which I have since sold on craigslist. Initially I thought I would unload this piece on craigslist as well and replace it with something lighter and brighter. Then I got to thinking that because of its simple lines, it would be a perfect candidate for decoupage. A little paint and paper can make a world of difference. So now I'm on a mission to find some cool pictures, or paper, or something that inspires me.
