DIY $25 Gold Dipped TV Console
Hi everyone! I am so enjoying see all of the DIY projects and renovations out there, so I thought that I'd share what is perhaps my favorite DIY involving paint.
I bought this large French provincial dresser at an auction for $25, and I wanted to use it as my TV console. I loved the idea of the storage underneath, but I really wanted to make it a focal point in the room. I also wanted to paint it, but in a different way than I had really seen before.
Here's what it looked like before (my husband called it "banana pudding colored"):
I painted it bright white, and taped off the bottom. I painted everything below the line with Martha Stewart's paint in antique gold. Here's the after!
I love the metallic sheen of the legs.
I'm currently working on a large eclectic gallery wall that surrounds the TV! I haven't posted it on my blog, but here's a sneak peek

Do you have anything gold in your house? I'm in love with it.
