This 1970s TV console was another Craig's List find. There were no pictures with the ad but it sounded interesting & originally I was looking for something to use as my display for CeCe Caldwell's paints. When she sent the pictures I knew I had to have this one! It wouldn't work for my display but I thought it would make a cool media cabinet! Here is the before after we brought it home in the back of the truck during a rain storm! At least is washed most of the dust off!
Here is the after:
It didn't need much, I just removed the back & the trim from the top, cut some shelves to fit, added supports & popped on a new back. The basket was a great find at HomeGoods. I was too
lazy busy to sand or strip it down so I used CeCe Caldwell's Vermont Slate as a base. It was a fantastic color but I know that black or white would sell much faster in my area. Here is the Vermont Slate while drying.
This was about 15 minutes after I put this coat on, it dries really fast! One of the many things I love about this paint is watching it dry! Crazy, I know but I am amazed watching it! I painted it SW Tricorn Black & did a rub through distressing. Sealed with 2 coats of Varathane.
