Tv Stand Project


Oh how I am in love with this piece, even before I did anything to it, I loved the lines and shape of it. 

Long story short I asked my husband if I came up with several hundred dollars would he allow me to buy new to me furniture and redo it... He said yes, soooooo I sold almost everything I could find that I wanted to replace with new pieces and made over $450 to go on a hunt!

Luckily, I had a connection to a wonderful man that had a warehouse full of stuff that I was searching for and he had great prices.

I bought 3 dressers, 4 small side tables, 1 iron bed, 1 iron bed headboard, 2 chairs and a mirror. 

I went with a plan and overall done wonderful with my purchases. Hubby was right there with me and was very encouraging and helpful. 

The TV stand was something I went looking for. I had seen several on pinterest that had turned a dresser into a tv stand and that is where my inspiration came from. 

I scrubbed the piece with sandpaper and then went over it with a wet cloth to remove any residue left.

I had already decided that I was going to make my own chalk paint. I picked a turquoise color and got my supplies which was very easy: Paint, Plaster of Paris and Water!


 First coat. 


Second coat - The chalk paint went on thick and beautifully. Very pleased with it. I stained the top an aged leather wood color that I have at different point throughout my home.


And ta-da!! LOVE IT.
 

I love the legs I love how my husband helped get the electronics in the drawers like I asked. I just simply am very happy with the way this turned out!
