TV Cabinet Makeover










I have another finished project to share with you all.
Firstly, can I say THANKS for all the kind and encouraging comments many of you have left, what a buzz!
This project is a corner TV cabinet which I won on ebay for $46. Not a huge bargain but it was the right piece of furniture for the spot I wanted it.
The handles are from a set that I won on ebay last month which I painted white. The interesting thing about the handles is that as soon as I set foot inside the sellers house I knew I had found a kindred spirit. I couldn't stop myself from checking out her lovely interior decor. She has some beautiful pieces of furniture and I had to control myself from wandering off to check out the rest of her home! We got chatting and I mentioned that I do a bit of upholstery. Well, out of that short conversation (hubby and girls were waiting patiently in the car for me) I am now reupholstering her large ottoman and 8 dining chairs for her. When she said that she would remove all the staples from the chairs before she dropped them off to me, I could swear I heard a choir of angels singing the Hallelujah chorus from Handels Messiah.
So I guess I'll have a few more posts up my sleeve.... never a dull moment:o)
I have just realised that the script for this post is in some random spot between my photos and I still don't know how to move it around so I'm sorry about that!

Great job on the tv cabinet, Ange, and congrats on getting a new client to boot! I like that the cabinet and the tv aren't center stage, but allow the other pretties in the room to be the focal point.
Hope you're doing well, and thanks for following DD.

That's so funny. I am just about to paint the exact same TV cabinet. I hate it in pine and thought it would look good in white. Now that I've seen it, I am definately going to start it this week.
