One man's junk is another man's treasure!!

So we desperately needed an new tv stand. The dinky little one we had was, first of all, unsafe for kids to be playing around and, second of all, it couldn't house our gaming systems or dvd's-most importantly our wii! I had been on the lookout for something super cheap and found this gem at a flea market for $20 bucks. I was all excited to bring it home. After telling Andy I only paid $20 for it his response was "you paid money for that?" Ok, it really was a piece of junk but I saw the potential and due to it's size I knew it would work. It was full of cobwebs, mildew and just dirt and the outside was sure nothing fancy but with a bit of scrubbing, painting, glazing, antiquing, drilling, sawing (had to cute holes in the back for cords) and some new harware I'm quite happy with the results and I finally have my Guitar Hero back!
Oh, and please try not to focus on the shelf jammed with books and kids things...I'm working on that too!


  1. I love it!!! You go girl. Listen to you, all power-sawed up and everything. :)

    Love the color.

  2. You did a beautiful job with it!!

  3. It looks absolutely gorgeous! We need to go flea-marketing together once Aaron and I move into our own place and are desperate to furnish it :)

  4. How do you know Nancy??? I know Nancy. She's coming tomorrow to the show.
