‘ 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;
