A few weeks ago, Dad and I started on this little beauty. I posted about it here. The search is over . Wow, just look at those gold legs. Not the prettiest, but she was the perfect size.
I did not love the open area above the doors. The whole idea behind this cabinet is to hide all of this…..
It’s like a giant web trapped behind the TV. Gotta go.
So without further delay……
Ignore the wires for now. I have been informed that holes will need to be made and wires fished through said holes. Yadda Yadda Yadda.
Now Dad and I have never claimed to be carpenters but we decided to add doors to the open area. I didn’t want solid doors because if the cable box is housed there, the remote needs to be able to connect. The almost done is because I have yet to find a little hook/latch that will keep the cute little wire doors closed.
3 coats of white “homemade” chalk paint created the beautiful finish. I even painted the wire on the door fronts. Then everything was sanded and waxed because everything is better chippy white. Little vintage here, little vintage there.
We also built little wire windows for the sides.
The insides needed a little pizazz so they were painted.
This little cutie has a surprise. The sides come down so that she can be thinner if she wants. Maybe she wants to be a buffet. She can if she wants, look at those caster feet. I.LOVE.CASTERS!!!!!
One more shot of the top just for kicks.
I stripped the old stain and restained. It took 3 different looks before I was happy but now? Happy.
It didn’t take long for the dog bed to make it into the picture.
Thanks for visiting! I love showing off my new/old stuff.
the girl who is going to bed. It was a long night. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz time.
