What to do with the old TV cabinet?

We had this piece on the floor for quite some time. It held a TV of course. The first thing we did to it was get a thin piece of wood to cover the cut out in the back of the cabinet. Then added a shelf so it could be used for storage. It holds a lot of stuff. But it didn't sell.....

so we decided to paint it. We painted it a stately black and put it back out on the floor. But it still didn't sell........ hmmmm so.............

We painted it again after all it is just paint, this time it was painted a taupe on the case and a lighter taupe on the panels of the doors. Then we added stencils in taupe, off white and tan.

Then we distressed it, which made the black show through and the oak color of the original piece

We shall see what happens this time around. I will keep you posted.
