Dresser to Tv stand { Media Stand }



Remember the Dresser I found at a garage sale

Old Dresser

as soon as I saw it I new it would be perfect as a Tv stand … I was inspired by Liz Marie Blog from

Her post Dresser to Shelf’s.

Here is the Process I did to get My Tv stand

I wanted to add some new legs so I cut off the bottom of the dresser

Then Added the Legs

For the shelf’s I bought a sheet of plywood for $13 at home depot and had them cut it down for me and then took some of the fabric I had gotten at Wal-Mart last year to cover them

Then after I just came in for a min to check the laundry the wind blew and my newly painted Dresser seemed ruined .. Im not a HUGE! fan of Sanding and really didn’t want to start all over .. So I put my thinking cap on and remembered that I had a ton of paint left over from the Giani Kit that I used to do the faux granite look on my bathroom countertop.


So I first painted the top with some leftover paint from the Teal colored walls in the boys living room

Then took some old towels and started adding the layers

The colors I used for this .. I mixed the blue with white

after it dried I used the sealer that came with the kit

Added some molding


After everything was dry we brought it in  .. Now sorry for the images it was a cloudy day I will take some better ones today when I get home .

Let me know what you think ….
