So friends, I have teamed up again with some talented ladies (Make sure to check them out I’ve added all the links below)
I am just so excited about this months thrift store challenge because I found this item for $20.00… I don’t think I’m going to find a bargain like this ever again.. This is definetly what you call a score!
It was a little grubby but not not much scratches on it. This is one of my items that I got to work on the very next day after I purchased it. Sorry guys, my hubby lost the original photo before i started to sand it!!!
The first thing I did was wash it all over with sugar soap (inside and out) I then sanded the top with my belt sander , orbital sander and then some really fine sandpaper, and used my special tool which was just a little teeny bit of elbow grease , no hard core sanding!!!
I completely sanded the top part only .
I started with the top and put two coats of wattyl interior one step stain and varnish in satin and the colour was walnut. To be honest I didn’t really like the texture so I lightly sanded it and went over it with Annie Sloan dark wax… Now this I loved and it seemed to match in with all the other items that’s I have refurbished in my home…
I then put two coats of white chalk paint from Canterbury blue and put it in my lounge area . I didn’t like the coverage so I used one more coat of chalk paint from Rust-Oleum and then used Annie Sloan clear wax as it’s sealer.
I have to say that I really love how it turned out, it’s not perfect but it’s me.. It’s such a big change from the dark one I had and don’t get me wrong I absolutely loved my dark TV unit but I’m going to be selling this house and I needed something a little brighter in this small house…
So below is my new TV stand and I’m loving the size of it. I feel it fits perfect into my home and blending in with the look that I’m trying to achieve!! I haven’t fully decorated it yet as I like to take my time and not rush with styling plus apart from the TV I can never decide fast enough in what I want to put on it..
