Good Questions: Can I Make a Hole in My Danish Credenza?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)


I’m considering buying a vintage Danish credenza to use as a media stand. I’d put a tv on top and contain the dvd player, etc. inside, along with dvds and cds. However, that would entail making a hole at the back for wires. Is that absolutely appalling? Or can it be done without destroying the piece?…

Thanks for any ideas.



Our understanding is that a hole would affect the integrity of the piece when it comes to resale. If that’s important to you, don’t make a hole. Otherwise, go for it.

Anyone else? (Have we just started a firestorm?)
