Redoing the Entertainment Center


So, I bought this entertainment center about 6 months ago on Craig's list for$120.00. It was exactly what I was looking for-I just really needed a little bit more storage space. Here are some before and after shots...
before...
AFTER! I love it and am very pleased with how it turned out...one thing that I still have to do is get some custom made doors to put over the tv and vcr area so that it doesn't show it that much.

before....
AFTER! with the help of a friend, Rhett Warren, I pulled off the existing back panel and put in some Wainscotting board, roughed it up and stained it just to really be able to showcase the decorations that I will be putting it there....(i actually got the idea from Jen Burrups entertainment center that they bought)
before...
AFTER! Roughed it up a bit. I like it roughed up so that if and when the kids dink it or something, I don't get mad or anything, it just adds to the art that is already there.

JESS IT LOOKS AMAZING!! I am so impressed with all the work you did on it. I knew it would be cute! The wainscoting was a great idea. I just bought furniture with similar (but a little wider) panels on the back because I love the look of it so much. Way to go! And all of your decor is just so cute in there! Clearly, I wish I was there in person to see it.

And I have so much to tell you but I will send you an email about it.
