I have been wanting a dresser to use as an entertainment center for awhile now. That side of the living room as always seemed a little bare to me. Since we spend a lot of time looking in that direction I wanted to warm it up a little.
My idea dresser would be a French Providential with curvy lines but I am on a tight budget and those have been hard for me to find. I kept my eyes open and ran across this one at a garage sale.
I paid $45 dollars for it. It does have all the handles I had just removed this one already. It isn't exactly what I wanted but it's well made and I think I can make her work.
This is my entertainment area now.
I have to say its my least favorite area in my living room. Sorry for the bad lighting, it was cloudy all weekend and hard for me to get some good natural light to take pictures with.
I got started...
Painting I chose to make her two tone, a light beige in the outside with a lighter white drawer facing. I usually use Behr paint with primer when I do furniture but this time I used Olympic I have to say I don't like it as much...it gave me a little trouble.
I also wanted fancy hardware to totally change the look but couldn't find anything to fit so I decided to add a little detail and paint the ones I had.
I went with gold.
I added this stencil under the handle to give it a little more interest.
And here she is
Can you see the two colors?
It's hard to see in pictures.
And here is where I put her.
I like it much better. I also can conceal the wires and movies very nicely to keep a nice clean look.
I have an idea for how I want to decorate the wall above I will show you soon!!
Here's another before and after:
What do you think? All together supplies and everything I came in under $65 so I am happy!
Happy Friday to everyone! I hope you had a lovely week. I have a lovely weekend ahead and I am really enjoying my new job so I am thankful for that and so many things today. This past weekend I spruced up my Fall pots with some pansies ....I just love the orange ones!
The hanging pots at my local stores were not tickling my fancy yet this season, so I decided to make my own. It's cheaper since I already and the hanging baskets.
Got some lovelies
And my baskets... all you need is a little soil
Plug them in
Adjust and spread some soil around
And your done ...these babies will last through snow and ice here in Texas.
Love the orange pop in my front yard.
Sorry this isn't a great pic but I added the kale and purple to my other pots and they look great. I love watching the kale grow huge!
I also brought a little fall color inside
Grab your pumpkin spice latte...head to the fair and have a cuddly weekend!
