Oak TV Stand

Oak TV Stand

Before and After, Furniture
Geez, I don’t know what it is about January, but every year I have a hard time getting back into the swing of things.  I am sure the cold weather doesn’t help and my kids all seem to be passing around colds and coughs.  It felt good to get out in the garage and finish up this Oak TV Stand.  I am sure many of you remember these, and would agree they are a bit dated.  But with a little paint, chicken wire and wood we can fix that……….
And here she is all dolled up!
I really want to change this piece up.  You may have heard me talk about Dave from Liberty Remodeling before,  he showed me how to use a router to get the inside panel of the doors out.  It worked pretty slick.  Once the panels were out I nailed chicken wire to the inside of the doors.  
To fill in the hole were the VCR would have gone and to add storage I made a crate box to slide in and out.  To add a little color and personality to this piece I Mod Podged napkins on to the front of the crate.  

This piece was so fun to refinish.  I love taking an old warn out piece and bringing it back to life!

I do not have a paint color of this piece 🙁

    It looks like a fun fresh piece now. I am currently painting a darker oak tv cabinet that is a bit bigger than this one. I took out the vcr racks and painted it charcoal grey. We will be using it for the tv in our basement sitting room. I just need to get busy and poly it.

    Popping over form Hometalk. Very well done Brooke! I especially love that you custom built and decorated that sliding pink crate box. Adds so much more personality to the stand. 😀
