I'm back! I've been missing you, but have been busy with clients and re-purposing this buffet. I should warn you that once you do this, it may be very difficult to stop. I'm already itching to start painting other pieces of furniture in our home!
Let's do this... If you remember, this Drexel buffet cabinet was found on Craig's List for $50.
I knew it would be perfect for our TV wall. This wall was pretty depressing. The Target TV stand was too small for the space, looked messy all the time, and was very dark. See?
After some primer and high gloss white, and new hardware, she looks like this!
These are possibly the worst photos ever posted on a blog; I apologize! But I hope you can still get the idea of the feel of the room. It's soooooo much better.
A few of you had questions on how I would incorporate the cable box without glass doors. Well...I decided to put the cable box next to the TV but I'm hoping it's camouflaged a bit with the books and orchid on top. The DVD player and Wii are both inside the buffet. My husband just drilled a hole in the back panel to run the cords and everything works perfectly!
Do you like it? It's "me" and totally fits our house. Would you ever try a project like this? I know I was inspired by everyone's favorite blogger, Emily Clark. Thanks Emily! Now onto the next project!
