So this weekend the hubby and I decided we needed to transform this old ugly entertainment center into a much NICER and more functional TV stand that would fit our television...here is our journey...:)
before: such a sad waste of furniture. :)
After we took the top hutch part off, we realized the original top had too many holes from screws in it...SO we removed the top from the hutch section, and replaced them out.
The painting begins...at first we were just going to paint it solid white, but we started sanding some of the edges and liked the patina it gave it. :) We also used old rabbit cage wire on the inside panels of the doors so that we could utilize our remote controls without having to keep the doors open.
Our little logo. My hubby engraved in the top. :)
All set up! :) So cute! I am loving it!
For enquiring minds, because I'm sure I'm going to get MANY questions on this: Screening Spline.
Screening spline is a rubber type rope in many different size gauges used on the inside groove of a window (or in this case a door) to hold screen in place.
Now, to insert this spline you can do it one of two ways...have the nifty roller tool to roll it in...OR if you don't have one or access to one, a flat head screw driver will also work!
So after working your screening or wire into the gap, you start rolling your spline into the open space...
