If you've been reading my blog, you might remember a post a did in August of 2011 about the wicker chairs I saved from the garbage dump (ok my neighbors curb) and made them all pretty again.
Well I've been at it again.
We FINALLY caught up with technology and bought a flat panel television and hung it on the wall.
The table we had the old tv on was quickly becoming a clutter spot. You know what a clutter spot is. It's that spot that everyone dumps everything. Obviously we needed a piece of furniture that was smaller but still had room for the Fios box & the Wii, etc.
I saw on Craigslist that there was a house near me that was giving things away for free. I wandered over there and as soon as I walked in the door, I found it.
That is a stock photo. While is looks just like the one I found, mine was beat to hell! Scratches & drawn on. Also it stunk from stale cigarette smoke.
So I left it outside
then I cleaned it
and sanded it
then cleaned it again.
Took the drawers out and the tract for the drawers. I didn't want drawers, I wanted shelves. Thankfully it already had a piece of wood under each drawer so that made things easier.
I left it outside for another day or two and then the painting started.
I am in LOVE with Kona Brown. It's a spray paint from Painters Touch. I coated the outside and once that was dry, I gave it a 2nd coat.
Now for the inside. I knew I wanted it to be a color that went with the room, but not the exact same color as the room. Well I had a sample left over from picking colors for the room, so I used that.
And this is the finished project.
Once the room is finished I'll do better pictures.
But I really like the way this came out.
