My second project for January (along with reupholstering a chair) is turning this old dresser I found into a television stand. I can’t decide whether to repaint it or not. The person I bought it from on craigslist painted it black, but I think it’s too dark… maybe? If I paint it, I’m going to go with an antique white. I’m also going to change out the knobs and take out the top two drawers and replace them with wooden inserts so that cable boxes can go in those slots. I may keep it or I may sell it depending on how it turns out! Any suggestions or opinions on it? I’m torn about the color! Part of me wants to practice painting on it as I’ve never painted a furniture piece before…
Update: I am going to paint it. It’s too dark, I’ve decided!
Here are some examples of dressers turned television stands:
Lowboy Dresser #2
This last dresser has a neat idea for using magnets to attach the top drawer fronts so that they can hide your electronics when not in use, but then can easily come off when you need access!
