Then DH got a fabulous new big screen TV for Father's Day. ( Yeah, I spoil him... that's just how I roll ...)
The new TV did not fit the entertainment center. DH
I told DH that I thought we should just try and up-cycle the entertainment center ourselves. Worst case scenario is we have to buy a new one, which we were on the look out for anyway. We had talked and talked about it; but neither one of us has ever done anything this big before.
So it sat in our garage.
Last week, I was out grocery shopping but when I came home a surprise was waiting for me.
This is what was in the garage.......
Yes! DH just took a saw and cut it off. He just cut it off at the height we wanted. I had planned to take photos but with such a wonderful surprise, who could be mad? Basically, after he cut it down, he took off the top of the entertainment center- the dark wood part- and made that the new table top. He used wood glue and then also screwed it on. He filled the screw holes with wood filler and sanded it down a bit. Since the entire center has a distressed feel, this looked fine. It looks better than fine actually.... it looks awesome.
Here is our new media center fit for the flat screen and my entry table is back.
Moral of the story is... just do it.
Get out a saw and try it. Whats the worst that can happen?
