TV Console & Bench Re-do

A while back I picked up this lovely beast off of Craigslist. When I picked it up I was sure that it was a TV stand that I was simply going to re-do, but after working on it, I decided that this TV console could also make a great bench in an entryway, mudroom, or anywhere in a home. I decided to style it a few ways for so that you could see all of it’s potential & different ways that you could use it. First let’s look at a before picture I took via instagram {here}...

This picture doesn’t show how bad this piece was, & I didn’t know until I got it home how much work it actually needed, but it ended up turning out great with a little paint, some new screws, & lots of distressing.

Of course I didn’t have bench cushions just laying around, but you could purchase a bench cushion from Pier 1 or any home decor store. You could even use an outdoor cushion and simply place it on top or attach with velcro strips so it will stay in place.

Using this piece in a mudroom or entryway would be great for your family and guests to sit on and put on shoes & also provides amazing storage. You could store shoes in the cupboards along with baskets for mittens, hats, and scarves.

Here I used two pillows that I had recovered in burlap as the seat cushions. I thrifted this picture last week, & I’m obsessed with it. The sun faded colors with that frame makes me happy. I haven’t decided where this painting will go in our home, but for now it’s been making our way around the house in different spots.

Now for this piece of furnitures true purpose, a TV console….

Using this piece as a TV console can be done in so many ways. Depending on the size of your television, there are thousands of ways to decorate the tv console & style it to work in your home. The storage cabinets are great for DVDs, game consoles, toys, and anything that you need to store in that particular room.

The colors used for this TV console were both by Valspar. The white is cream in my coffee & the taupe color on the doors and on the legs is Frappe.

 This was a fun makeover & I think this was a great find because of how many uses this piece of furniture can provide. This piece is so functional and versatile so if you see something like this piece, don’t pass it up! I hope that you all had a great weekend & a great veterans day. We have made some progress in our master bedroom & there are some hints in this post about our bedroom {paint color, & pillows 🙂 } What would you use this piece of furniture for? Do you have a piece like this in your home? Let me know in the comments below or {here} on the Facebook page.

    To begin with I wish to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d want to
    ask if you don’t mind. I found myself interested to determine the way you center yourself and clear your brain before writing.
    I’ve had a tricky time clearing my thoughts to get my thoughts out.
    I actually do take pleasure in writing however it just looks like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally wasted just simply considering where to start.
    Any ideas or tips? Thanks!
