New project - dresser turned into plasma stand

As of Saturday, I am the new owner of the solid wood dresser, mirror and two matching side tables, I fell in love with on Ebay.

All for $46 dollars, Bargain!

I got a lot of laughs from my hubby's mates, as they cannot see the potential in them.

Silly boys.

My plan is to turn these into a entertainment unit/plasma stand.

I wanted to keep the patterns in the top draws evolved, but its not going to suit anything in my house and look really out of place, as all my furniture is dark wood, square, with frosted glass. Very modern style.

So I am going to keep it pretty modern looking, but I am not going to keep the dark wood in it. I need something different, but still compliments all my other furniture. (Well for now anyway, until I have enough $$$ to re do aaaaaall the furniture...)

As most of my existing furniture has frosted glass, I decided to paint it blue, but try to match the glass color:

And also use the handles I brought for the last dresser I fell in love with, but missed out on.

I have taken out a few of the draws to make shelves, for the DVD and PlayStation to sit in.

So far I am pretty happy with it, hopefully I am finished soon and will upload some pictures.

I have also put myself on an EBay, garage sale and op shop ban until I get some more of my unfinished projects completed.

Wonder how long that will last :)
