John and I found an entertainment center at our local thrift store, DI, a few weeks ago and it was beautiful! It even had doors like I had dreamed about so many times! It was small like ours, but it was real wood…with doors…and molding…and ball feet……and it was $150. Thumbs down! Very sadly I walked away.
A couple weeks later we went back to DI and my beauty was still there! There were tons of people looking at her, but no one was buying. Seriously – $150 at DI is just to much. I jokingly told John I was going to go offer them $100 to take it off their hands and he said, why not? So I did. And guess what they said yes!
We brought the lovely little girl home and I wanted to give her a black makeover with some wood showing through.I forgot to take a before pic until I was already going but you can get the idea.
7 cans of spray paint later and a new bead board back and this is what we have:
The finish is hard to see from far away but this is what it looks like up close.
I’m so happy. Total cost was about $170 for everything. I LOVE that I can close the TV off. My boys don’t ask for it as much when they cant see it!
I also wanted to share something cool I found in my Moms decorations. They are the cutest pumpkins!
But when you turn them around…..Ornaments!
Sa-weet. A decoration that can be up from October through December! She got hers at a boutique, but I’m sure with a little effort they would not be too hard to remake. A little funny story about these too… We were all cleaning the house, so we could decorate for Christmas. Caleb walked over and turned the pumpkins around and said, “well, that’s taken care of.” 🙂
I thought they were so cool and wanted to share!
