Do you have an entertainment center that has glass cabinets like we do? The kind where you can see all the junk gaming systems, unorganized DVD’s, and anything else that landed in there? Well, I hate clutter as much as I hate roaches. Actually, I am terrified of roaches, but that’s for a different post on a different blog that I don’t have. :)
I don’t have a before picture of our entertainment center, but I know you can use your imaginations. :) Here is what it looks like now.
All I did was paint the inside of the glass on the cabinet doors! I had some Ralph Lauren metallic bronze paint left over from something else, so that’s what I used. And it ended up matching perfectly. Hooray! You could also hang some pretty fabric from the inside as well to hide everything. Easy!
Here is everything you would see inside if the glass wasn’t painted.
Yowsa!! I know that’s scary, but does it make me weird that I don’t mind the clutter as long as it’s hidden? I know all of you out there have that one special spot, or more, where junk just accumulates but you hide it. Well, at least I hope I’m not the only one…
Now, if I could just find something to do with that huge subwoofer and speaker stands, life would be dandy.
But that isn’t going to happen so I’ll just move on.
I have this little table in our breakfast area that you have seen in previous posts. It used to look like this.
No, it wasn’t always off centered like in this picture. I had just already started moving it. It houses our internet/tv router, and all of those ugly cords were exposed. So what did I do? I followed Nester’s mistreatment for tables and found some fabric and went to town!
I didn’t use hot glue though, and instead used fabric glue. I just cut a yard of fabric around to fit, folded a hem line, and glued it. Very, very simple. One word to the wise, and I know you are all much wiser than me, but DON’T do your project involving fabric glue on top of your wood table like I did. There is a strip of our breakfast table that is messed up now because the glue leaked through the fabric. The glue has acetone in it so it will eat right through the wood. And if you read the back of the bottle after you’ve screwed up your table, it clearly states to not use on wood surfaces. Ummm, yea….I’m brilliant.
Here’s my mistreated little table now.
Much better eh? No cords exposed and no ugly boxes to see. That’s a winner in my book!
I attached the table skirt with small upholstery tacks. I was thinking of adding more tacks all the way around the top to give it a nailhead trim look. What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear any suggestions!
I like how this fabric coordinates with my new window treatments.
I’m a sucker for paisley print and stripes. :)
This is my one week blogging anniversary! It’s been a blast. Thank you bunches for reading and leaving me sweet comments. I love reading all of the comments and they really bless me. :)
