a little project on the side

Tyler and I got this entertainment center a couple of years ago when we were living in Chicago, I'm surprised it has made it through so many moves, especially one as rough as this Hawaii one! I've been getting tired of the ugly wood veneer but my husband being the oh-so-typical man he is NEVER wants me to paint over anything slightly resembling wood...even veneer. Well, while the wood cat is away, the painting mice will play!

Before


You gotta love all the nice, classy tangles of cords in the back, took me the better part of an evening to fix those.


After.



A few coats of my old faithful, Antique White, and a couple of vintage knobs, and Ta-Da!

What a difference. Much better - in a ladies' opinion. And always remember, "it's much easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission". Tee Hee!

Love the new look for the blog.

I'll have to admit it looks great! It appears you did a great paint job & the knobs really make a difference. A great job girl!
