Repurposed Dresser

I had been on the lookout for a dresser that I could repurpose as a TV stand for some time.  Size was definitely a consideration and so was storage - in addition to space for those ever-lovin' components that we've acquired.

I finally found one that met all of my specs - and it was $20.00.  It did come with all of the hardware but I had removed it before I remembered to take a photo!

The top was sanded and stained (Valspar Dark Walnut) and the rest was painted with HM chalk paint using Behr Chipotle Paste & My Savvy Sister Chalk Paint Dust.
I opted to remove the first large drawer to make a shelf for TV components and use the rest for storage.  I kept the original hardware, just painted it flat black.

This is what I was looking for over three years ago when I got my first flat screen TV but I couldn't find what I was looking for to repurpose, so I settled for a piece as a temporary solution.  It was Made in China out of pressboard.  It looked "okay" but it really was a piece of junk - so glad it's outta here!
