Trash to Treasure

I picked up this entertainment center a week or so ago at a yard sale for $25. DH laughed at me when I told him I wanted it. He said, "I cant believe youre spending $25 on garbage"!! Ive been needing a decent size piece for my TV that wasnt over bearing for my lil livingroom and I found it. Of course I forgot to get a before pic of it still intact, but did get a shot with the doors and hardware off.

Notice who is "helping" me sand it)


The next few shots are progress -



With the doors on -



And a few shots in the livingroom -







I still need to get knobs and I was thinking of adding a beadboard backing:) After I get the knobs and beadboard Ill get s'more pics posted! I just LOVE how it turned out. I had to giggle at my hubby because once we got it in the house he actully said it looked good!!

WOW! That looks great! Good for you seeing the potential! I love the solid doors on the bottom! And I think beadboard on the back will look so nice!
I know you are tickled pink over it! I would be!

I love this makeover; tell the man he has to admit he was wrong!!! LOL; and the way it looks now; I was in a shop that wants 799 for a tv cabinet painted red! SOOOOO you also saved him a load of cash!!! HAHAHA! I also replied to your tag on the previous post; I am not doing well in the spelling dept today and seeing where the comment lines were; I am so bad!!!!
