Destiny on Craigs List

I had been searching for an entry table for quite awhile and knew it was destiny when I saw this pretty on Craigs list! Not only did the seller end up living right next door to one of my dearest friends,

It also had these tucked inside!:) I told the man if the Osmond eight tracks came with it, consider it sold! Score:)
We ended up taking all the fun stuff out. My mom was disappointed because she wanted to rock out to Disco Mouse, but we would have never used it, and I needed the storage.

After Hubby gutted her I planned on doing all kinds of fancy paint treatments, but after brushing on just one coat of paint, I loved how she looked!


There were now holes on both sides where the speakers used to be, so I got some bead board, painted it,and hubby installed it.



LOOOOVE IT!


So, she has been sitting like this in my entry way for 2 weeks, while I patiently waited for the knobs and pulls to be on sale at Hobby Lobby. But when I got the ones I had been planning on home, I didn't like them. So frustrating!

I ended up spray painting the original ones black and I think they will do!

Just what I had pictured in this crazy head of mine.
I am going to link up to Thrifty Decor Chick for her before/after party.
And also to Sanctuary Arts At Home~ You should have seen it before party!
And:) Kimbas DIY party at Soft Place To Land!
Finally ~last but not least, we are linking up to The Shabby Nest for her Frugal Friday Party

Jenny @ DIY Newlyweds said...

That is awesome! So cool, I love that the table has history behind it and is such a unique piece.

Better After said...

Me again! Yes, I TOTALLY agree it's better after. (ha ha, pun not intended!) I never know what to do when people leave their unfriendly opinions. Luckily it's only happened a time or two. I guess everyone is entitled to think what they think. And I think your cabinet is great!

Oh My Gosh!
I have to tell you. I have one sitting in my office area, and I have been trying to figure out what to do with it. It is almost identical except yours has claw feet and mine are more flat. They have the same front though and even the same type handles. I am so excited. I am painting mine red. I have red in my dining room and kitchen area. I was wondering if you sanded yours up a little before painting or just brushed it on lightly and left some places showing? I cannot believe my luck to find your demo of such a beautiful piece. I have signed up to follow your blog. I cannot wait to see what you share next. Please stop by and take a look at my blog. I would so love to have you follow mine as well. I am having a 100th post give away in 2 weeks. I haven't shown what it is yet, it is a surprise. But a GREAT one. You will have to go back a couple of post to the boot post to enter. Hope to see you soon. Country hugs, Sherry

Is there anything better than robin's egg blue distressed furniture? I think not! :0)

Love it- great job!

Misty said...

My Mom had one just like that when we were kids. It used to be my job of dusting the speaker grates with a Q-TIP! Looking back I think she was just trying to keep me busy lol oh well! Love how yours turned out!

Jen R. said...

It looks great! I love that color! Beautiful! Thanks for joining in on the party! Jen

Brenna said...

The Osmonds would have closed the deal for me too! You totally need to throw an old school party and whip those out.
The entry table is perfectly stunning! I sooo want to use a similar color on an entertainment center I have. Nice work!!!

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...
