Before and After

I've given myself many little jobs to complete before our exodus to Tennessee and one of them being the tv armoire. I purchased this from a liquidation center here on island. It came from an upscale hotel after they decided to remodel. It was a good price but a little too light for decor.

So I painted it black. I found some cool drawer pulls in Bangkok but couldn't get four of the same so I'm left with the originals until I can find something to fit the new look. There's quite the glare on this when I took the picture and it's only a semi-gloss. In all my projects this was the most time consuming. It probably took a total of 12 hours after all the coats that I put. Let's hope that it's not destroyed in the move and all my hardwork was not in vain!

Great job! :)

I have an armoir & matching nightstand that I was going to paint white...BUT...if there's a chance we'll be moving soon, I'm going to leave it b/c it matches a futon we have upstairs and they could all go together in the new house.

I like projects like this, though!
