I've been seeing all kinds of great furniture transformations around blogland lately. Just a little paint can do so much. I've ohhed and ahhed over this record player, this hutch, and pretty much everything in this post.
So anyway, I'm thinking about painting our TV stand. I got it a little over a year ago for $5 at a rummage sale. I really want to add some color in here since all our walls are white and there's nothing I can do about that. Here is what it looks like now
It kinda, sorta matches the other woods we have in the living room.
So questions I have are:
Would it look stupid if we had one painted piece?
How exactly do I go about painting it? (I'd have to do it inside because it's too cold to paint outside now. So... no spray painting.)
What kind of paint do I use that would go over the shiny finish and stick? (Again, painting inside so I don't want to do a lot of sanding or use a stripper.)
I'm a little nervous to paint it. Normally I wouldn't be, especially since it was only $5. But, with Christmas coming up I don't have a lot of extra funds so if I screw it up, we'd be stuck with an ugly TV stand.
What would you do?
