Refinished Oak Cabinet

I had this great oak TV cabinet at the lake house that we didn't use anymore, so I decided to refinish it and sell it.  First I removed all the doors and shelving.  The large door had a leaded glass insert - so 1980's, so I took it out and Louie went and bought some grating to replace it with.  If anyone is interested in the leaded glass piece, it's for sale!  Great for all kinds of projects.


I gave the cabinet a light sanding....


And then 2 coats of gorgeous gray paint and a good waxing....


All the hardware and the new grate got spray painted white and then the hardware was distressed....


Then we took it over to The Hodge Podge in Benton, Kentucky.  If you're at Kentucky Lake and anywhere near Benton, you need to stop by The Hodge Podge.  They have all kinds of great items for sale there like hand crafted goodies, vintage items, furniture, odds and ends.  Great stuff!



This is the first piece of furniture that I've re-done and taken to a shop on consignment.   We'll see what happens....


Fingers crossed.....I hope she sells....

  4. It really looks great Kim! If you find that it doesn't sell you might consider adding a back and some shelves to the open TV area. I think sometimes older entertainment centers are harder to sell only because the newer TVs don't fit in the openings and people can't see the other possibilities! I've thought about redoing one for my craft room.
