Recycling Junky Furniture

 I've been working on redoing my girls bedroom.  It was all reds and tans for the past 10 years or so, and both my daughters really really love pink and turquoise.  So I finally caved and we have been working together to switch it over for the least amount of cost possible.  One of the projects was super fun!

I had this old TV stand from Walmart circa 1997 from back in my college days.  It was old, crappy, water stained and gross.  My daughter had been using it to store books and quilts.  She really wanted it pretty so I dug around in the garage and found some bead board that a friend had given me like 2 years ago.
 We cut the bead board to fit it and glued it down.  Then primed the whole thing and painted it peacock blue.
 And last we changed the hardware for $2 when Hobby Lobby was having all their knobs and pulls 50% off.  Sweet!  I think it is so much cuter now.  I'll show some other projects we did throughout the room as we finish them.

  2. This is so cute! I have some furniture to repaint and I was just going to go white, but I'm loving this peacock blue. What line of paint do you use?
