A few years ago, the hubs brought home a monstrous entertainment center. I wasn't a fan of it from the get go! This past year, it seemed to start deteriorating. Broken drawers, etc. I searched and searched for something to take it's place on Craigslist. I saw plenty of pieces that I liked at different stores, but I refused to pay the outrageous prices!
So, I was sitting in the livingroom a few weeks ago and had a "lightbulb moment". I dragged the hubs to Home Depot and picked up all of the supplies to make my vision come true...sounds romantic huh?
We picked up a chunky piece of wood, that the awesome guy at the store cut in 3 pieces for us, some black brackets, some Polyshades espresso satin stain (stain with poly in it). Hubs beat up the wood purdy good with a hammer and stuff, sanded it, and stained it (2 coats).
Wella...our entertainment center alternative was done! Oh...and LOVE it!!! Oh, and yes you can see all of the ugly cords because I still haven't found a solution for them! But ya know what? I'm ok with it...for now! Lol!
I made this little block to go along with my late brother's photo. He will always be in my heart!
I'm loving this great lantern and burlap crates that I found at Home Goods!!!
Stay tuned later this week for a cute storage solution!
So what do ya think?
