"New" Entertainment Center

i'm now posting the longest project in history...it took me days to paint this entertainment center...for almost 3 years i've been trying to decide what to do with it...it was originally bought for a 54" projection screen tv. when jeff and i got married we moved the tv out and put in his flat screen...we used a sofa table to sit it on until i bought the dresser and turned it into a tv console...i'm obsessing over white right now...it really brightens up the room...its kinda hard to get used to looking at it...its just straight gloss white right now...no distressing or glazing...

this is the dresser turned tv console...the left is when i bought it...the right is after i painted the top black and added some glaze...i also painted the knobs


so dark...my flash was on too!

here it is finished...a few santas until after christmas...

You are so brave! I have so many wood pieces I would love to paint white, but just cant take that leap YET! It has come up a treat and thanks for sharing, I will follow on my way out so I know the path back to your lovely blog. I hope you will find the time to come visit my place soon and do the same. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and look forward to supporting your blog in 2012. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

that's great, it looks like it was all made to be one piece like that.

Love it! I plan on tackling my entertainment area in the near future, how to paint it has been holding me back.
