A few weeks ago I found this beauty on craigslist for $20 (the bottom doors did come with it, but I didn't get a pic with them)
I didn't notice a lot of the damage because I was so excited for the hardwood.
Once I got home and looked a little closer WOW It looked liked it had been kicked, dragged around and used as a jungle gym
When I thought I had filled in all the holes, cracks and dents ... I found more and more and more
I probably should of just bought something new, but for $20 I guess what can you expect?
A few weeks later, I called it good - sanded, primed, and top coat on (SW Big Chill).
Looking better ...
I then began stenciling the back with a little black acrylic paint added to SW Big Chill
The corners were a too hard to get to, so I ended up taking the back off and finishing there ... much easier, wish I would of done that from the start!
and here it is in the living room (with a peek of what I am doing here)
moved things around a little - the - a - is spray painted and the books are wrapped with scrap booking paper.
I used these knobs from anthropologie in turquoise
These were taken with our point and shoot camera ... Over the weekend, I may or not of dropped my camera, well it actually fell off of the table - lens flying off - breaking the plastic connection from the lens to the camera body :(
We were thinking about upgrading our camera anyways, so now to decide whether we will get a new camera or just a new lens
This weekend we were also working on building a new upholstered ottoman for the living room
Check back later to see our progress!
