My Dresser TV Stand

A couple of weeks ago, I was looking for Halloween Costumes with my boys at Savers & I glanced over and saw this dresser & the price tag read $14.99!!!

I mentioned it to my husband later that night and said even though it wasn't exactly what I've been looking for(I've been searching for a dresser to use as an entertainment stand), we could probably paint it and resell it if nothing else. Two minutes later he was walking out the door to go and buy it for me. He's the best!!:)

AND...
I made it work for our TV after all & I love it!!

Here she is...all $14.99 of her, holding our TV...

 Here is our Family Room about a month ago, with our laminate tv stand...
Since then, I've tried to brighten it up a bit & add in some BLUES & GREENS & take away the REDS & here it is today:)
  The best part about my new "entertainment dresser"???
All of the storage! I moved all of our movies from our office closet into the 4 larger drawers!
The smaller drawers hold our wii and more cords...all tucked away so nobody can see:)
 and I found a cute little basket to hide our remotes...

All those hidden movies/games/remotes makes me smile:)
The littlest things make me happy! 

** I will show a little "how to turn a dresser into a TV stand soon & you will see how EASY IT IS! You don't believe me? I did this ALL BY MYSELF, without my hubby's help...from start to finish! 

No help from my handy man=it must have been easy!!!:)

Absolutely beautiful, the drawers look excellent and how fresh it makes the room too much attractive. It is too much easy to do in short time as well as the selection of colour is perfect.
