In the corner of the family room at the end of my kitchen is this corner TV unit which we picked up secondhand from expats leaving to go back to the States. I don't like it... all the furniture in the house is the dark wood of the desk that is next to it... it looks weird and is badly scratched and must have been sat in the sun because the top has a faded area where their television used to sit.
See? Urgh.... so after Chris left for work this morning I thought I would see if I could do anything with it.
It's not looking very promising is it? In fact, at this stage I even said out loud to the cats that Chris was going to kill me.... LOL but what's a girl to do when she has gone that far?
OK... a couple more coats and it isn't looking too bad!!
and a quick trip down to the scraproom and some paper on the front of the drawer... and sand the edges back a bit and red ink the bare wood to give it some depth...
Pop everything back on and in it....
Do you think he will notice when he gets in from work in an hour or so? ;)
UPDATE: Chris had been home 3 hours and hadn't noticed... and the door to the right of the tv unit is the door to his study... so its not like he didn't have to walk right past it! LOL Then he called downstairs to me in the scraproom and said ' it looks very nice' LOL... he had checked my blog for updates and realised what he had missed.... so though he lost points for not noticing, he gained points for taking the time, after a busy day at work, to check my blog!! :)
