Upcycled TV unit DIY project



Ok so I suck at remembering to take before pictures, but if you can see from this, the TV unit was a brown murky mess..lots of stains on it so we just gave it a light sand, as parts of it were veneer, so breaking it back to basic wasn’t really an ideal situation. We took the glass doors off, and spray painted the draw and glass door knobs gold, and decided to have plain white as the colour choice.




So here you have it…oh and I also suck at taking during photos…so my apologies. I am totally happy with how this came out, as we have been using a really old chest of draws to have our tv on. So I utilised the draw for wires and components to keep that ugly stuff hidden, and found that the cubby holes were a perfect fit for some oversized books which didn’t fit in our bookcase..plus it’s totally a way to show off your cultural side to guests…paired with some mini Star Wars figures, and some fresh flowers, and the tv unit was finished. I should say that we got this unit for £5 from a reuse centre. So it was a total bargain, and I used Laura Ashley paint to paint it. Honestly I would recommend free cycle, charity shops and house clearances because you never know what you might find..this was a really quick and easy DIY and although Richard sanded it, I painted and styled it..all the while being heavily pregnant…so anyone can do it!
