Flea Market Find: TV Stand

Flea markets and garage sales can be your best friend people. I found a sturdy table at a local flea market that would serve perfectly as a TV stand because it had a shelf for my cable box and DVD player. I went to Home Depot and picked out two colors that I liked and got them in the little sample jars and set to work. I used a stencil that I already had from doing an accent wall in the living room to give it a little flair. Note: if you do a project like this, you might want to drill a hole in the back so that you can feed your cords through it.

I wish I had a before picture, but it has been lost in the shuffle of the past few months of craziness. It was originally a hunter green and looked pretty scuffed up and masculine, so of course I had to do something about that right away.  I bought the table quite a while ago, but I believe I spent about $30 or $40 on it. All in all a pretty simple and inexpensive project that is very functional. A coat of paint can do wonders!
