MEDIA CABINET TAKE TWO


My new camera equipment came on Tuesday. She and I are having a hard time getting acquainted but I know that as soon as I figure out her personality, we are going to get along just fine. This camera does so much more than my beginner camera and I want to take advantage of all of the great features it has to offer. One thing that I have already discovered that I love is the 18-150mm lens that came in the kit. I can get so much more in my frame.  I can now show you a much larger part of my family room that I am working on.  The room is not complete. It still needs a few more layers, but it’s certainly getting there.

I was also able to re take the photos of my media cabinet. There really was not a good angle using my 50mm lens the last time I tried to show you this. Now you can see the entire piece and the details a whole lot better. For those of you who asked for more photos of this, I am so sorry it took so long!

I don’t have 3 of those chairs, just in case you were wondering. That would be a little overkill.  I moved one to the corner for this photo to cover up the big gaping hole! I am still looking for just the right chair to go in that spot.

If you didn’t see this in a previous post, this gorgeous piece of furniture was a very dated 70′s piece. I fell in love with it’s curves, it’s beautiful drawers, the quality and the fact that it is on wheels. This finish is by far my favorite ASCP combination. I used Country Gray on the base of the piece with old white in the details. I distressed the edges and antiqued it just a little bit with some glaze. I then gave it several coats of poly, knowing it would take a severe beating from my kids.
I seriously thought I was going to have to replace the hardware but after I finished painting and put it back on, I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s beautiful.
Picking up dressers like these are a good idea. They are so versatile. This piece can function in  it’s original intent as a dresser,  or it can be used totally outside the box as a media cabinet or a buffet.

Have you painted a piece with chalk paint? It’s not to late to enter it into Stacey’s chalk paint contest right here on my blog for a chance to win some incredible ASCP goodies! For more information take a peek here. You don’t have to have a blog to enter. All you need to do is have it hosted somewhere like photobucket and make sure you enter your email. Good Luck!
