Have been busy painting again!. Wanted a new T.V. unit but new ones were really expensive.
So I decided to look for a used one. I brought this from a local junk shop for £20. It is all solid wood and very heavy.
First I removed the doors and took the slats out of the sides. This took some time as the slats were all pinned in.
Then I sanded it all down. And painted it with a couple of coats of satinwood white paint.
Next I had to decide on the finished colour. And sand it back, to give it that worn shabby chic effect.
And this is what I choose........
Of course it's pink! very girly I know. But I have my large up cycled dresser in my lounge and that's pink.
The only decision to make now is to add two new wooden doors or add a pretty curtain to enclose it?
This is my up cycled dresser ( I have done a post about this piece) It shows the true colour of the pink in this picture. The T.V. unit picture shows the pink too bright. I have now added a curtain to my dresser and a bird I made, hanging from the handle.
Hope you have enjoyed this post. Would love to hear about your up cycled pieces and the bargains you have found..
