Small Black TV Cabinet

Hello Everyone!  I hope that you all are having a fabulous week!  Mine started out rough.  I ended up catching strep throat AGAIN!  I have no idea how it happened, but I am so thankful that I'm the only one in the family that got it.

I was at The Salvation Army a couple weeks back.  They were having their 75% off sale!  I didn't find much, but I did come across this little TV stand.  It was solid wood, so I grabbed it.

Here is what it looked like before.

I had every intention of switching out the hardware, but there are no screws to take off the old hardware.  I have never seen that before... I dunno... I just went with it.  I decided just to paint them black.

Here is the after!

My stockpile of furniture is gone, so I get to go shopping this weekend.  It's my absolute favorite part about flipping furniture!  I love the treasure hunt! 

I hope that you all have a great weekend!!!



  1. Oh my goodness I LOVE this piece. The way the interior is stained against the black paint is perfect.

  2. this looks great! i love how the dark grey transformed it. visiting from mms.

  3. Oh wow, I love this one too! And can you hunt for me too? Definitely not my favorite part. I'd much rather paint!

  4. Lovely- the design on the doors really makes the piece a special one. I like the stain you used on the inside; what type/color did you use?

  5. I think I'm going to end up posting on every post! Lol! Just found your blog and am catching up on your posts. I keep finding things I like! This is one of them. Love whatever color black this is.

  6. So usually I see an awesome painted piece of furniture and think - ohhhh I want to something like that some day - but of course, I never do. WELLLLL.... this time I followed through. I've linked back to this post as my inspiration. Check it out here if you want: and.... all because you shared it on Trash 2 Treasure Tuesday! Thanks so much!!!! :)

  7. That is a really fun repurposing of a TV cabinet. There are still entertainment centers; they just focus on storing DVDs and players. As TVs move from bulky boxes to wall-hanging flat screens, this kind of abandoned furniture will become more common.

  8. Wow! It really is amazing what a bit of paint, and a good eye for design can bring to an old piece of furniture. You got a really good steal from the salvation army, and it looks brand new after the paint job. Well done, I am sure this will make someone very happy!
