Teen to Adult with a Little Bit of Paint

Hello!  I must apologize for this post being late.  It was not intended to be late, but unfortunately it happened.

So, Haley had this TV stand in her room for the longest time.  It was purchased at a yard sale for $5 and she covered the drawer and the sliding doors in duct tape, which was perfect for her room when she was younger.

But now, it’s been sitting on our patio for a few months.  And as I am going to be moving into a house instead of an apartment in the summer where I will need more furniture, it was perfect for me to redo.

The first thing I had to do was take all of the duct tape off of the drawer and doors.  It was actually a lot easier to peel the tape off then I thought it would be.  I had to really work to pull the edges up, but pulling the tape off was pretty easy.

And of course, the animals had to help.  Kiara…that was for painting, not for sitting.

So this is what the drawer and the door looked like originally.  They were a pretty grey color, but I was going paint them white.  I only painted one coat of white because I wanted it to have a bit of a weathered look.

I then went to paint the the actual TV stand.  I went with Navy Blue Rustoleum paint and covered the whole stand.  That included the top, sides, and a few pieces on the front.  It covered really nicely and I love the shine that comes off of it in the sun.

And here is the finished product!

I love the nautical look and think that it’s going to look great in my living room.  It turned out better than I expected with all of the work that went into taking the tape off.  I like the colors together and know it will be used someday.  Thanks for coming by!

    This is such a nice makeover Lauren. It looks all ready to face adulthood, no more of that teenage washi tape look! I like the color combination of the white and blue. Thank you for joining us over at Sweet Inspiration.
