Credenza, Credenza, Credenza

"Auntie, what's a credenza?"

"It's like a bureau for an office. It has doors and shelves for storage."

This was part of a conversation I had with my nephew last week.  I was describing how the installers got the three six foot long credenzas out of the truck, through the factory, and into the conference room.  It was not an easy feat.

Much finagling was done to get this particular credenza out of the truck.

The shortest distance between two points

 turned out to be a tour all around the building.

and then getting flipped over onto one side.
There was 1/2" clearance at the top of the door frame to get these into the room.

Then I had to install the computer equipment.

There are still a few little things to do. We need to move the speaker phone to the middle of the big table and purchase a more attractive trash receptacle, get the electricity connected to the table and stock the credenzas with notepads, pencils, coffee mugs, napkins and safety glasses and a whole collection of other stuff.

But, as we say here in New England, we are wicked proud of it.

And so you should be.

But, having made a success of this project, have you stopped to wonder what the boss might have up his sleeve for your next one?? Hmmmm?

Sydney, Australia

Congrats . . . the remaining details will be easier than what you've already accomplished!

And you had to do some wicked planning to know that credenza would have 1/2" clearance when up on end!

What might you be doing in that very handsome room that would require safety glasses?! Don't scratch any of those lovely surfaces!

OMG hubby and I were having the same conversation! I have a credenza I bought years ago that was in our shed holding craft supplies. I decided it would be perfect in our new house in the living room. Hubby was like "what is a credenza?" I had to laugh when I read your post. how funny!
