There is nothing I like more than finding something old that is badly in need of a little love ... especially if it can be a new functional piece of furniture in my house!! Last Christmas we got a new - bigger -TV for our bedroom. Since then I've been looking for just the right piece to serve as theTV stand. I had a few requirements ... it had to have completely straight lines - the top could not overhang the sides. It had to be between 50" and 60". Fortunately, I found just the right thing!
I used my Caromal Colours paints and mixed to make a custom color turquoise - then 'washed' it with a darker teal glaze. I painted the hardware too - I didnt want it to stand out. I used elements from an 'all over wall stencil' and just picked the parts I liked best. I wanted the white to be a 'whisper' and not appear too bold. I'm really happy with the results. This was an inexpensive IKEA cabinet and a thrift store dresser. I painted a the IKEA pieces before I assembled it -- much easier! One more probject DONE!!
