Entertainment center makeover in the makings!!

Hello, Hello! Hope you are all very well today.  I had a fabulous day with friends shopping at my favorite antique mall Sleepy poet.  I do believe they were pretty happy we came, as we all left with a little fun something.
In the meant time, I would like to show you a little of the entertainment center makeover.
Today, is not a great day for photos, so this is mostly snippets.

 New hardware {sash pulls from the early 1800's}
were purchased.
You may recall our color choice dilemma

After much consideration, and reading all your lovely responses, in the end we 
decided it was not a great idea.
Our family room is full of color and really this piece would just be a big ole eye sore in a different color introduced in the room.  We did however spruce it up a bit.

These appliques I purchased at Lowes and Painted them black...then adhered them with the command strips.

I did get a few new things for the top of the entertainment center as well...

It all came together nicely, and quite reasonable with cost.

I can't wait for a sunny day so I can show you more...

Can you tell what I did to this pillow?
Yes indeed it is stenciled!
More on that later.
Thanks for popping over..
I will catch up soon.

Wow us Wednesday

What a great fix and when you want something different, easily changed.

I'm sure you made the right decision in the long run, Debbie. Not every piece of furniture needs to be painted anyway.

I think your solution with those appliques is a great one. I can't wait for a sunny picture taking day.

I love the stenciled pillows too.

Wish I had gone shopping today instead of taking the mister to the doctor and then for x-rays and then the pharmacy. Love the appliques and your new stuff.

I was at All About Home today. Beautiful! I brought home a couple of things including a gift for a friend. It was a great shopping day here in NE MO.

Your cabinet project looks beautiful, Debbie.

Glad you had a good day shopping with your friend. Wish Charlotte was a little closer to Roanoke - although I know I was closer than a lot of your followers.

I'm sure it looks great! Only you can really sense the vibe, feel, wieght and balance of the room as a whole, no matter how many photos you share. Can't wait to see the whole thing =)

Since you have a stained mantel, I think leaving your tv cabinet alone works just fine! I like your black appliques added to it. It looks like it goes with the black trim on the top of it too.

Love the wooden "bling" you added Deb. Great touch. I also love the sash thingie from the 1800's. Very cool!

Debbie, the entertainment center looks just great! You really came up with great ideas for adding trim.

Sure hope your wrist is better. I know what a problem it can be to do all you want to when your hands hurt.

Take care, my friend.
Hugs, Maki

Girl, I don't care if you are stickin' a flower in the dirt or redoing an entertainment center...everything you do is FIRST CLASS....and I always just love it. I am glad to catch a breath between crafts of tv stand doesn't need updoing and I am holding my breath that I don't EVEN like your next project as if I DO like it, I am in for another TRY with all my might to stay up with ya.

I agree with you, keeping it the same color. I can see in your snipet that you have your fireplace surround ? the same color.
BUT, it looks AWESOME with those painted appliques! I love using them, and like you, with tape that won't ruin the piece when you remove them!!
Can't wait to see the whole thing!!!

Yes! I'm glad you are using "stuff" to spice up that entertainment unit. You are a spicy gal and the accessories will reflect that.

I really am glad to hear that you didn't opt to paint this piece of furniture. Having natural wood tones in a room is not a bad thing! So many people are jumping on the painting bandwagon and wielding a paintbrush on everything in sight. Adding the wood embellishments was a fun and great idea. And I like your new look on the blog, as well. :-) Sue
