Chalk Painted Television

I am so excited to show you this next piece.  I found it in the garbage and fell in love with the beautiful shape of the feet and top.  

 It turns out that this was an old television with the insides taken out.  When I picked it up on the side of the road it had wood panelling sliding doors and a piece of panelling in the back.  It had already been repurposed for storage.  I loved the shape and had my dad take the panelling out for me and put in a shelf and some bead board on the back.  He also added a rope detail to the front of the shelf.

I used my homemade chalk paint to paint this shelf.  I then distressed it and added two coats of wax.  This is what it looks like in my living room. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!
