First, I’d like to say Oh my gosh, thank you all so much for your sweet comments and for checking out my guest posts at Or so she says and Thrifty Decor Chick! I was beyond excited to work with these two sweet ladies. Thank you, Mariel and Sarah, for having me!!
Besides the postings, I’ve been getting things going in the living room. To say that the room is a mess is and understatement. I look forward to everything being done so I can have a little sanity back, but the gettin’ there is half the fun, too, right? So instead of parking it on the couch in my spare time this week (ha!), I’ve been messin’ in the garage – painting the TV dresser.
I bought this dresser at a thrift store over a year ago for $30, which was an awesome score since it is sturdy and heavy and in great shape. I always knew I’d paint it, but it took me awhile to figure out what I wanted.
are the inspirations for my new living room. I love the blue – love it! And everything looks so bright and happy.
I already had the lamps that I luuuuve! Now I had direction for the rest of the room.
Because I live in a rental, I didn’t want to paint the walls – just to have to repaint them again when we move. But the blue was calling to me, and I decided to use it on the TV dresser.
I could have gone over to the hardware store and bought new paint, but I knew I had this curb-rescued grey paint in the garage.
(white spray paint I already had)
Except the ugly brass parts…which were immediately sprayed silver.
I purchased three knobs for $3.97 each. Eventually I will change out all of the knobs, but if I were to do that right now, it would have blown my entire $30 living room makeover budget. So three knobs for now.
I may want to distress it or glaze it or something, but right now I’ll keep it like it is to see if that’s what direction I want to take. For now, I like it the way it is.
