I’m back with more Goodwill Gold. I’ve decided that SWFL is a decent place for Goodwill-age. Retired people love to give their stuff away! Haha! The resale shops (you like that? Now Goodwill sounds fancy. 😉 ) in my area tend to have cool stuff from time to time.
I’m also majorly color crushing on sage right now. Ugh! One of the many bathing suits I purchased this summer was also sage. I can’t get enough.
This guy started our like this
You see him back there? Behind the DIY Dress Up Center? That typical ugly brown laminate color.
Of course I took to Pinterest to find the best way to paint over laminate without sanding, because let’s face it, sanding is awful and no one wants to do that! I found an abundance of tutorials on how to do it. They all led me to…
So I did. I primed every inch of that thing. I even bought some mixture that some of the tutorials said to mix in with the primer.
Then, I waited a day and painted.
Then, I made my husband help me to carry it all in the house… and I went to put the little inner shelves back in. And….
All of my hard work wiped right off. Like, a light breeze could have removed all of the paint from the entire project. -_- yay.
Pinterest had failed me! haha. Seriously though, I felt betrayed.
So I had to repaint all of the areas that had scraped right off. And then I was left to decide what to do, because obviously what I had done was basically worthless.
But fret not, dear readers! I sought help with the hero of all DIYers, the tried and true of the crafting world…
Yes. I covered this entire thing in Matte Modge Podge. And guess what?
Now nothing can scathe its sage gloriousness. Not my kids NOR my 100 lb dog.
I had a left over paint sample that I used on the cabinet door. It just seemed like it needed something to break up all the green. haha. And I still think that I’m going to change the old school hardware.
I decorated it with my favorite little boho style candle holders.
TJ Maxx | Bath and Body Works
I crazy couponed at Bath and Body Works and got the cute little gold one for free. 🙂 #winning
And yes, I know I still need a candle for the tall one. Don’t judge me!
Oh, and this is my daughter getting all up in my biz-nass and stuffing a flip flop into one of my flats while wearing a head band around her neck??
I promise she has real toys.
But yeah, there you have it. Cheap little Goodwill Gold TV Stand. Thumbs up. 🙂
Make anything good lately?
