Dresser Morphs into TV Cabinet

 Here is a piece we bought on our picking trip. Below is what it looked like when we got it.....

yup it was missing the doors in front of those two center drawers, It also had a hutch top which we left there.  I had plans for this baby...

We took out the center drawers and their slides to  make a "floor" so to speak where those drawers were. We added a board to level out the space so your Cable box or Direct Tv box would sit in there.  Then we cut a small rectangle in the back of each shelf of the dresser for all those cables to go out of and hook to the HUGE screen TV that would fit on top of it.  Then the inside of the spaces were sprayed black.  I painted the outside black and distressed it.  Being that it was pine it distressed really well. and I used dark wax on it which brings the wood that is showing to a nice copper color.  It was all very pretty.  I used the original hardware and painted it Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Took this beauty to the shop and it sold in a couple of days.  A nice piece of work all in all.

Have a great week!
