Oh wait...let me show you the before picture again...
and AFTER... (keep in mind I haven't decorated yet...and I'll be replacing the burp cloth with a runner)
Wow...what a difference from the entertainment center before. I can breathe. I was beyond ready to get rid of the honey oak!
The room is so open now.
I'm so thrilled with how this turned out.
I kept all the old hardware. I just cleaned it up a little.
(raising my right hand) I , Judith, solemnly promise, that I will never use straight paint again on a piece of furniture. I will alway use a paint/glaze mixture. Thank you Anything Pretty.
Like I've said before, I usually start a project good, then get sloppy towards the end. But I am so proud of myself for taking my time, and being patient. I even used 3 coats of poly. I've never poly'd anything before, b/c I'm in such a rush! Thank goodness...the dresser wasn't in the room for 3 minutes before the Moose started running his cars on it!
And I'm thankful for hubby being patient with me, too. It's hard to keep looking at a new tv for almost 2 weeks and not be able to put it up!
So, now, the journey continues on how to fill this wall??!!
I like my oval black metal things. But I know it's a lot of black right now. After I accessorize, we'll see how it looks. I'll keep my eye out, but I'm not committed to changing those just yet. So stay tuned!
