A Corner China Cabinet ....Becomes A TV Cabinet!


 I was thrilled when our neighbors gave us their old, worn out, corner china cabinet. Actually, they were going to throw it away, but I said I would take it! I wish I had a before picture of it, because it was in pretty bad shape. My husband thought I was crazy! I had been wanting something to hide the TV and DVD player, etc. in our master bedroom.
Of course, I painted it white and distressed it a little. The old, ugly, outdated knobs were replaced with pink glass knobs and I added the pink floral curtains to hide everything! My husband moved the inside center shelf to the top part of the cabinet to set the DVD player on and then drilled a few holes in the back for the plugs to go through. The drawer even holds all the remotes! I am really happy how it turned out and how all of the equipment fits nicely inside and is hidden away! My husband now admits it looks great in our bedroom!!!

I would love for you to enter my "Watering Can Lamp" giveaway here!

Beautiful! I'm looking for the same thing for the same thing. It is very hard to find an old piece that has a large enough opening for a tv. You did a marvelous job making that one pretty.
