TV Stand dresser.

   ‘ The art of living is always to make a good thing out of a bad thing.’

  ~ E.F. Schmacher

Art to me is about vision.  It is about seeing potential in something that others may not see.  It is about taking something and changing it, making it unique , making it your own.  It is about expanding your eyes to see beyond the norm and the usual.  Today’s project is just that.
It is about how I took a normal little white dresser and made it into something different, and gave it a new life as a TV stand.

Here is the dresser as it was before:

Here is a list of what I did to the dresser to make it into a tv stand;

  • Sanded, and painted entire piece,  including sides and insides of the drawers in Sherwin Williams ‘Light French Grey’ paint.
  • Removed the top drawer and added in old cedar fence boards using small finishing nails, to make a shelf.
  •  Drilled small hole into back wall of dresser to allow cords to go through if used as a TV stand.
  • Replaced original hardware with yardsticks for drawer pulls.  The yard sticks have been stained lightly.

Here is the dresser after;
