French Dresser turned Fabulous TV Console!!

Hey Everyone!  I hope you are having a great week!  We have gotten several new pieces done lately (which I will show you at the end of this post), and I wanted to show you one that we transformed for a client.  She was looking for a long dresser that she could use as a TV Console in her living room.  I looked and looked, but could not find the perfect dresser to paint for her.  Then I got to thinking (scary, I know)....what about the dresser in our entry way.  Remember this...

I have always loved this dresser, but the missing drawer has always bothered me.  I know that the basket was not exactly the right size and could have looked a lot better.  That was on "The To Do List" for like 3 years.  Seriously.  Oh well.  Anyway... I sent a picture of it to our client and she LOVED it!!  The empty space would work perfectly for her DVD player.  In fact, she asked us to take out another drawer for another TV component.  She also asked us to paint it black.  Yikes!  I had never painted anything bigger than a chair in black.  I was a little nervous, but it turned out great!!  Our client was very happy!! 

Here are a couple of other finished pieces...

And here is our latest purchase.  It is to be painted a soft grey tomorrow.  I can't wait to see how it turns out.  I will post "After" pictures soon.

That's all for now!  We still have several pieces that haven't sold.  See my last post and give me advice!!  PLEASE!!  I need it!!  Thanks Guys!!

  5. I just looked at a dresser like that with the same idea. It turned out great. If I can get it for the right price, maybe I'll have to copy you.

  6. Great transformations!! What a great job you have, painting furniture for other people. My problem is that I don't have room in my house for new projects...:-(

  7. I love your work! Well done. You've given me some great ideas with colours too. Can't wait to see your future projects.

  8. That is a good idea for those types of boxes. I could have never have thought of doing that.
