{“oldish” dresser turned TV console}


1st – where has time gone?  I cant believe its almost mid-november already!  I have been so busy with furniture orders/re-do’s that i have totally neglected this little blog of mine.  I have taken tons of pics but just havent had the time to get them posted – but i am working on trying to make a little time to get back to this blog – also time to check out all the blogs that i love (and miss!!)   :)

And 2nd – i recently  transformed an older dresser into a cute little TV console for a big ol’ flat screen.  This was a made to order piece – so it went all black, no distressing, new handles, top drawers removed, and a piece of molding wrapped around the bottom to hide the oh so dated scroll carvings on the bottom.

Before –

And after – (pictures taken in clients home)

**notice the bottom?  molding was wrapped around entire bottom to cover up the carvings – really updates the piece, i like how it chunks it up :)

Up close look at trim that was added around removed top drawers.  FYI – all drawers on top were removed then wood shelf added so that they can put all their TV components on it.

Ok, i will be back soon with more :)

    beautiful! The molding looks great! I seriously need a tutor like you to help me with all of my wood-re-do projects. I'm learning by trial and lots of error!! -diane

    Nice upcycling job but I had to laugh at your clients choice of black when she clearly doesn't do her dusting often enough ;)

    Wow! Awesome transformation of the dresser into the tv console. Adding the trim on the bottom was a great idea. And I love the color. Great job!

    I LOVE this! You must tell me though, what kind of paint and what finish did you use?! I can't seem to get it right and I"m trying to pick out a paint for our accent table that I'm hoping to paint soon.

    Love it. I'm so mad I just threw out a dresser because a few drawers were broke and beyond repair. I wish I would of seen this post a few weeks ago!

    That looks great, and I am in awe of your woodworking skills! Where did you find the knobs for that?
    It's so much better I think to reuse something that is real wood than buy some crappy particle board thing for way too much money! I just can't believe how much they charge for that fake stuff.

    Great re-do. I have one that I picked up for $30.00 the other day and am planning on doing it in black. Hope it turns out this well. Teresa

    I absolutely love it!!! I was wondering also about the finish, I can't quite tell from the picture if there is like a rustic distressing (areas showing a rusty red under the black) if so what product and technique do you use. Thanks.

    I loved this idea of turning a dresser into a tv stand. I just finished one for my living room and absolutely love it! Its a fun light powder blue color. Thanks for the idea!

    I love your site! I love your furniture re-dos and especially how you turn dressers into tv stands. I would love to see how you do this.
