Metamorphosis Monday .. TV Stand

It's Metamorphosis Monday time again..
Make sure you stop by Susan's Place
and see what morphing treats everyone
has to share.

As I stated a few weeks ago Jeff
and I have been giving our home
a bit of a facelift.
When we first married I had a love for
the country pine look... that has
since changed.. Thank You Jesus!
Now I can't stand the look of it and
after seeing all the
yard sale finds, flea market deals
that everyone in blogland was
morphing and beautifying
with just a lil black paint..
I couldn't resist to fall
victim to the trend.
So here is my next installment of
From Pine To Fine..

An old TV Stand that has the strength to carry
the weight of those big bulky 200 lb dinosaur TV sets.

I really do love the pieces .. just hate the finish.
This one as well as all of the other pine pieces I own
were made by a local man who did this as a hobby.

After washing it down to remove the 10 years worth
of storage dust I sanded it down really well.

Then I primed it..
Tacky brass hardware an all!
I would have removed the hinges but
they weren't put on with screws..
he used nails.
I had bad experiences with nail

removal... So I left them be.

I know all of you folks up north are really gonna hate
me for this next lil bit .. and I do apologize..
BUT.. we folks in Georgia have really been blessed
with some beautiful days the last few weeks
so I've been able to complete a lot
of my tasks outside.

My Handy Dandy Husband picked out
this paint at Lowe's and told me this is what I needed for
my transformation.
I think he knew what he was doing..
because I think it turned out great.

Excuse the walls.. as I explained earlier..
we're in the middle of that facelift.
This piece will go in Ashley's room..
which is getting a new doo also... and serve
as her new TV stand.

New decor theme for her room is
zebra so I think it'll fit in perfectly.

I hope you enjoyed my lil metamorphosis project,
and I really hope it inspired you not to
be afraid to try
something a lil different.

Now head back up to the top and
click on that link and go
see more pretties at Susan's.


  1. LOVE IT....i love the black and white, the cabinet is amazing. I have added a bit of zebra print in our living room, it adds a nice touch
    thanks for sharing

  2. It looks so great! I love seeing posts where people reuse what they already have. Budget friendly makeovers are my favorite kind. I can't wait to see her zebra room when you are done, it looks like it's going to be so fun and pretty.

  3. Debbie...looks great! Amazing what everyone is doing with black this! Can't wait to see the room, too! :-) Susan

  4. Great job! I love seeing all of the budget friendly makeovers. It makes so much sense to reuse what you already have if you can and this really came out great. It's going to look fantastic with that fabric! Kathy

  5. Debbie.......what a SUPER makeover! ;) ~CC Catherine from "Catherine de th`e Cups" (Love the black)

  6. Hi Debbie! Yes, I love your transformation on this cabinet! It looks great! You did an outstanding job! I would have never know to use a Rustoleum paint on wood. I'll take your word for it. It looks awesome!
    bE a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  7. Great transformation! And such a great piece of furniture! Can't wait to see the completed zebra themed room!


  8. Great job... I love it!

    I had a few things I wanted to paint outside....but it was too chilly and windy (in GA) this weekend!


  9. LOVE IT! What a difference. I too have a severe distaste for pine. Great job.

    Could get your blog to load yesterday but all looks well now. Love the Jesus cloud. The chest looks so nice. I love the decor in black and white.

    Have a Wonderful Day!

  14. That turned out so good! I can't wait to see her room. Looks like my kind of room! Have a great week.

  15. That turned out beautiful!!! I didnt realize that you are in Georgia. We lived their for a little bit and loved it. I have family out their.

  16. That looks fabulous! I have been freshening up my old pieces with black paint also, it just adds instant style for very little money and effort. I love it!

  17. Looks fantastic! you did a great job and the zebra print will match so well.

  18. Oh Debbie I LOVE it!
    Black painted pieces just pop!
