can of worms
Remember the goodwill dresser turned media console? Well, that piece of furniture opened up a serious can of worms.
I liked the look of it soooooo much better than the tacky glass stand.
My original plan was to take out the top drawers and create a shelf for the components. But I chickened out. I liked the way the dresser looked too much to take the drawers away.
Which left me with a tiny problem. No room for the components. Which was kind of the point of the whole media console to begin with! Like I said, can of worms.
So as a temporary solution to get the components off of the floor, I bought an el-cheapo laminate media cabinet from goodwill. It was $5. Just till I figured out what I wanted to do.
Functionally, it is great…it holds all of the components just fine and dandy. Aesthetically, it is ug. For a split second, I thought about painting it black. But that would be the equivalent of putting lipstick on a pig.
What to do…what to do…
What if I take some pretty fabric and make a slipcover for it? Why not?
I found this pretty fabric on a road trip to JoAnn Fabrics in Buffalo yesterday. Love.
Today I whipped up a slipcover. Pretty fabric can solve most any problem. (Another bumper sticker?)
Here it is. Considering I’m a beginner sewer, I think it’s gooder ‘n grits.
Here is a little trip down transformation lane.
The lid is back on that can of worms.
I’ve got some other changes in the family room that I can’t wait to show you this week.
Till next time!
