TV Stand

I have been searching for the right piece to use as my TV stand since we moved in. I had a smaller "redo" table as the TV stand, but knew I needed something much bigger. 

When my sister was getting rid of this piece I knew I HAD TO buy it from her. It is perfect for my space. Unfortunately (I could just slap myself) I was anxious to start painting this piece, and completely forgot to take before pictures. (I know, I know, right?!)
Please forgive me for this grainy cell phone shot. It shows a shelf not painted yet, so you can get an idea for the original color.

 I used an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint from Home Depot in white. I am in LOVE with chalk paint. Although, I will make my own next time. It was quite pricey.

 I simply cleaned this piece really well and didn't bother sanding it before hand. The chalk paint adheres fast and dries quickly. (It has a gritty feel so after you get as many coats as you want, you may want to lightly sand your piece to smooth it out.) 
My husband and I also added legs to this piece to give it the right heigth and the right look. 

I sanded the edges when I was all finished to give it a antiqued look and then applied a few coats of a polyacrylic to seal the paint.

 I love everything about it! 
It stores so much stuff- Xbox games and console, CD's, DVD's, Blankets, remotes, etc.
