Guys! We’ve been painting again… a lot.
Last weekend we painted our living room walls. In our rental. Yeah! I was so wishy washy about it. I couldn’t decide if it was worth the “trouble.” Turns out, I was a fool for waiting so long. Our new gray hue has totally transformed the feel of the room. It’s so calm and relaxing and the whole room is really changing and I love it. The gray walls really make my navy painted media stand pop!
This little beauty was painted several weeks ago, so if you follow me on Instagram, this is old news but bear with me. I had been on the hunt for a dresser to repurpose into a media stand for a long time. Finally, I found the perfect one. Dressers are great as media stands. They are perfect height, you can pull our drawers to use as cubbies for stash cable boxes, plus there is plenty of storage space! My favorite part though, you can get a fabulous media stand for CHEAP. Finding an old wood dresser to repurpose is easy. Take a peek at Craigslist, thrift shops, garage sales, they are everywhere.
I snagged a dresser for cheap from Craigslist. Once we got it home we immediately got painting. I knew I wanted a navy painted media stand. Our walls are very light, so color was necessary, and I’ve been obsessing over navy and brass for awhile now. The color is Elegant Evening by Olympic paint with beautiful brass hardware. Swoon. I’m loving the results.
I think we’ll end up taking out the top three drawers and making them cubbies for all the technological stuff For now, I’m using every since drawer for storage!
Tell me, have you ever repurposed a dresser? What are you using it for? I’d love to hear from you. Don’t forget you can get some behind the scenes sneak peeks by following along on Instagram.
