I love free, or nearly free, as in the case of this little cabinet! My neighbor had a yard sale and I bought a scuffed cherry finished solid wood nightstand. It even had brass hardware. Yuck.
I got out the black paint and brushed nickel spray paint and went to work. Rain was threatening to start any minute but I managed to get the paint on and the cabinet inside before it came down. After it dried I carried this HEAVY little guy downstairs to the basement TV room. I had promised my husband I wouldn't carry furniture down the stairs e-v-e-r again (long story but let's just say I stepped backwards into thin air and took a tumble), but this time I was SOOOOO careful.
This chair was free (and was the piece of furniture I took the spill with). I haven't put any accessaries on the cabinet yet, got to let the paint cure a little longer. The room is small so I think the cabinet is just right for the space beneath "THE TV". I don't need it for the DVD player, etc., because it is all behind the wall, so this is free territory to dress up. Diana
