Re-purposed TV Console [your pick]

Untitled 12

Today’s wonderful “Your Pick” transformation comes to us from Allyson over at Domestic Superhero.  Allyson was in search of a TV console table for her new 51″ TV, so she set out to find one at her local consignment shop…but what she found was far from that.  Allyson found a beat up old dresser instead, but not just any old dresser…a dresser with a destiny…destined to become her new TV console table that is!  Here’s how the dresser looked when she found it:

Allyson sanded down the piece and removed the top drawers so that it would be open shelving for her TV console…

Then she gave the piece a good coat of primer…

Next, Allyson painted the piece a funky shade of yellow, how fun!

Since Allyson decided she wanted the piece to have a distressed look, she applied a coat of dark glaze on top of the yellow.  After the glaze dried, she painted the piece with one more coat of yellow paint, then it was ready to distress!  Allyson sanded down the paint in different areas (mostly around the edges) to give the console table a weathered look.

The last thing Allyson did was give the original hardware a coat of iron rubbed bronze spray paint.  Here’s how her re-purposed TV console turned out!  Pretty amazing, huh?!

  1. Kudoos to you for all the hard work. I love that you had vision.
    That seems to be what I lack. The color is very bold, very fun.
    Love this Blog, excited to see what else comes up. I’m very inspired.

  2. What a great makeover! Great color. I also re-purposed a dresser as a TV stand. I’m thinking they should just start producing dresser shaped TV stands!
