Last weekend my sweetie and I spent the our time painting the old entertainment unit/bookcase that I have had for about 15 years. It was one of those "put it together yourself" pieces of furniture with the cheap carboard backing that you punched out the holes for the wires. it wasn't awful, but that room can be quite dark because of very small windows and I wanted to give the room a lighter feel.
We painted it right in the family room because it's way to hot out now for the paint to behave properly. The back of the cabinet was removed and we sanded it a little to help the paint stick.
Then it got 2 coats of my favorite primer KILZ. (This is after one coat)
I am so happy with the finished result. The room has a cleaner lighter look.
We went to Home Depot and bought a panel of bead board to replace the cheap cardboard that was there. It looks like a real piece of furniture now!!!
I sanded all the edges a little bit and found these cute knobs at Hobby Lobby for only $2.00 each.
It was a very long weekend of painting, but soooo worth it!!!
BTW... Thank you to everyone who left comments on my last post. I'm trying very hard to keep up with life, work, the party, and all your lovely comments but I just couldn't get back with everyone. Please know that I love reading all your comments and I love visiting your blogs.
This last month has been crazy busy and I hope things will calm down a little bit in a month or so. I look forward to having more time to come over and hang out for a while!!! LOL!!!
