We have been looking for something different for our TV for a while.
Our current TV stand is an huge old trunk I picked up at Salvation Army ten years ago.
I had certain things I was looking for in a “new” to us TV stand: no MDF, drawers or cabinet to hide cable box etc, 36″ wide or less.
I stumbled across this cabinet a few weeks ago at Feather Your Nest consignments but didn’t purchase it because I really wanted Joe to see it first.
So Friday we were on that side of town (on our way to set up a wedding reception no less).
He saw it. He liked it. We bought it. $129
I can’t wait to get started.
We discussed our refinishing plan in the car on the way to the wedding.
Joe: “Why don’t we sand it and then stain it navy blue.”
Me: “Ooo I like that idea. Oh and I could paint the top white and then poly the whole thing.”
I love a good plan.
So we are going to use a navy blue stain.
Weird I know but I think its going to look awesome.
And then we are going to paint the top an off-white.
Kinda chic cheap modernized TV stand.
Selections so far:
Paint for the top of the cabinet:
Stain for the base of the cabinet
I was going to reuse the hardware on the cabinet to save a little money, but one knob is so damaged that I have decided to just replace them both.
I wanted a knob with natural elements that tied in the neutral colors I have going on in the room but that also added a little pizzaz.
So I ordered these knobs from Anthropologie.
Overall color theme for the cabinet: Clean lines, navy, white and natural horn.
Does it get any more classic than that?
