Regular readers know that I like to “test drive” things, just to make sure I’m going to like them. If you look in the foreground you will see a VERY large side base that I built to put next to the media center base. Yeah, that didn’t work out too well. It was gynormous! I am going to use it in the garage to hold my compound miter saw I got for Christmas. I made the smaller bases and placed them on either side to make sure they weren’t going to take up too much room.
The sun came out over the weekend! It was downright warm working outside. I even had to change out of my tennis shoes into flip flops. I was able to get a coat of primer and a coat of semi-gloss on all 4 pieces.
This is what my goal has been all along. It’s just been a long time coming.
I have no idea how I am going to accessorize all those shelves yet.
It’s so pretty! I’m so happy with how it all turned out. Oh yeah, the doors on the side bases, they’re just leaning. I haven’t been out to get the hinges yet. This media center started out to be a PB knockoff. I’m not sure if you would consider it a knock off now. I made a lot of changes, mostly with the dimensions. But I owe a big Thank You to Ana of Knockoffwood. I would never have attempted to make something like this had I not seen her plans. If you haven’t checked out her site, you really should.
Just a reminder of what this spot looked like Summer 2009. Big difference? Yeppers! I am liking the new look a LOT!
Okay, now a little tease about my upcoming giveaway. Next Wednesday is my birthday, what better way to celebrate than to give away something really fabulous. I don’t actually have it in my hot little hands yet, I expect it to arrive by FedEx today or tomorrow. All I can say is, it is going to be hard to let go of.
