Why do I wait FOREVER to do projects??? I usually just end up kicking myself for not doing it sooner! This project is a perfect example of my silliness.
I purchased and painted my new kitchen table waaaay back in February and I had a TON of paint left over. I loved the idea of painting my “entertainment center” but I didn’t know how great it would look; it is a cheapy particle board piece of furniture from WalMart, and almost ten years old! But on Sunday I decided to just give it a go… worst case scenario: I go buy a better quality and already dark wood tv stand!
See? Kinda an eyesore.
I started by painting a shelf and when that didn’t look horrific, I just went to town. Like I said, it was rather spur of the moment, and I didn’t think through: painting in the 100 degree weather – paint dries REALLY fast on a non-wood surface in that kind of heat. But I had fun, and I think it only took an hour and a half total to finish.
It is not the most perfect paint job, but the small imperfections are nothing anyone would notice sitting across the room on my couch! I love (LOVE) how much better it looks; more “mature” maybe? And only dread having to dust more frequently! :0) Hooray for “new” furniture!!!
