>ugly dresser turned cute console…


1st set 261

so i had bought this cute little dresser with good “bones” at the fabulous DI for $40.  I knew that she would make a super cute little console table for under the TV in the family room.  We previously had a sofa table so you could see all the plugs and it was just a mess.  So, i did a little sanding, a little painting, a little staining and then a little more sanding and i got this…

I took out the top drawer for all the TV components, put some cute little baskets for remotes and stuff.  I stained the top a dark  color to match the floor and painted the rest white.  Although the dresser is super heavy duty the drawers kind of suck, so the bottom 2 drawers store all of the kids games.

The knobs that were on it were already cute, big chunky wooden things, so i left those on and called it good :)

And here you can see my cute little dollar store frames with some glittered chipboard letters.  One of the very few valentine decorations that I have.  But it turned out pretty cute!

    >I like the makeover and am working on something similar.

    I inherited a drawer from a friend who about to toss it. It's 4 drawers high but one drawer is missing a face so I want to add a piece of wood & baskets.

    What did you do for the wood inset to hold the baskets & TV gadgets?
