Goodwill Dresser Turned Into A TV Stand
In the almost 7 years that my husband and I have been married, we've never bought a TV together. We've always had hand-me downs. This year, we decided to finally get a nice TV. However, we needed something to hold it. I refused to pay the hundreds of dollars that most of the nice ones cost. So, we went searching at thrift stores and on craigslist.
The day before we bought our TV, I walked into Goodwill and saw this sitting in the furniture section. Guess how much it was?
Can you believe it?! It was perfect. It just needed some work.
So, we got to sanding it! It took a lot of sanding. Then we picked out a plain white paint at Home Depot for $9.
Here is how it turned out...
Ahhhh, I love it!
Here is a close-up of the detail right in the middle of the TV stand. You can tell that we slightly distressed it.
Here are the knobs we picked up from Hobby Lobby. They fit perfectly into our color scheme. Plus, they were all 50% off. Gotta love a good sale!
Here are the pretty clear knobs on the two smaller drawers. These came from Home Depot.
We decided to take out the two smaller drawers on the bottom so that we'd have room to store our DVD player or any other electronics that find their way into our home. It tends to happen with boys!
I have to give my husband all the credit for this part. Instead of a piece of plywood on the bottom, he took some old fence boards and cut them to the size of the shelf. I love how it turned out. Gives it a little rustic charm.
Here is a zoomed out shot of some of the details. We also decided to take the middle door off and fill in with an old locker basket. I think I mentioned before that we found this in a parking lot just hanging out ready to come home with us. I love giving things a new life.
I filled it with some of my husband's old baseballs from his coaching days. He loves, loves baseball and good thing I do to! They fit perfectly in the basket.
