We inherited my parent’s old entertainment center when we moved into our house 3 years ago and it was fine. It provided a lot of storage and display space and served its primary purpose of housing the TV and DVR/Wii/CD player. But……..it wasn’t really our “style”…not that I’m really sure exactly what our “style” is, but that wasn’t it.
We’ve been on a little search for what we wanted to replace it with and LOVED the ideas on IKEA’s website (and trust me, I’m sure we will frequent the site again for other items….), however, we had the gist of what we wanted. One weekend Hubby came across and estate sale and found a great buffet that we could refinish into what we had in mind for the TV, etc. Sadly, by the time I made it to the sale the piece was gone…….but, tucked away in the back of the house was another sideboard. And lots of potential. Hubby talked them down to $50 (from $95, by letting them keep the hardware that came with it–it was AWFUL and we were happy to let them keep it!). And so we came home with our little DIY project. (By OUR, please understand that translates to my Hubby, in which I will happily take joint credit. We all should know where the real sweat and effort came from though, to be fair.) Without further blah, blah, blah…here is the story in pics:
So pleased!! Can’t wait to see Hubby’s next project….let me go find my list! 😉
