T.V. Cabinet Re-Do

So...I've been spending a lot of my times the past two months re-doing my house. :)

Now that I am home every day, I started to feel claustrophobic.  So...time for a change!  I LOVE change.  I used to rearrange my bedroom when I was little, couldn't tell you how many times I rearranged my classroom, and now my house.

In order to save (and at times make) money, I've been finding pieces at yard sales and consignment stores to re-do.  Here is my latest.

Bought this T.V. cabinet for 45 buckeroos at a yard sale.  It had scratches, but those were easily sanded out.  Plus, I knew I was going to distress it, so I liked the imperfections.  (It made me feel even better that the next yard sale I went to was selling a similar one for close to $200.)

My mother-in-law had the paint, so I only had to spend a little time and about $10 for the knobs to make it look like this...

It looks way better in person.  In fact, I bought it to re-sell on Craigslist, but Caleb and I liked it so much we kept it for ourselves. :)  The bottom has been GREAT, because we hide some of Mia's toys under there.  She also likes to crawl in it and play peek-a-boo.

Hopefully I'll get to posting more of the before and after projects I've been working on. :)
