So here's what I found...
(Sorry for the extremely bad picture quality, it was from my phone and the store was SO cramped!)
Inside the middle doors, it had a shelf (for stereo equipment) and it was solid wood! It was $80 at Salvation Army, but I got to spin the wheel to get an extra percentage off...gotta love thrift stores! I got 25% off (among the many 10% and 5%) so I was thrilled!
I don't have pics of the process since it was pre-blogging days, but here are the steps I took when I got it home:
- Take off doors, apply wood filler in holes and sand entire piece
- Wipe down and prime
- Paint (black, in this case)
- Ordered hardware from ebay (cheapest place I found for what I wanted...paid about $1 per knob)
- Used cordless drill to make 2 holes in the back for the cords to go through
Have you been looking for that perfect piece of furniture? Maybe I can help jump start your idea process...let me know!
