I´m probably not the only one that thinks that the "TV-wall" is a bit complicated. I have been searching for a TV bench for a long time now, and I can´t seem to find one that I like for a reasonable price and at the same time goes well with our other furniture. Therefore I ended up buying a used TV bench for 500NOK($90) on Finn.no, and I gave it a little makeover.
The TV bench was originally in oak, so the color was kind of yellowish. I gave it two coats of driftwood stain so it became a bit greyer, and I painted the top in light grey. Afterwords I gave the top some light sanding so I could see the wood shine trough the paint, and I replaced the knobs with new ones to give it the look that I wanted.
So what do you think? Do you like my little makeover?
How is your TV wall? Are you happy with it?
Please share some pictures on Stylizimo.com if you want. I will publish some more pictures of my TV wall there as well in the next following days. I just realized that I haven´t taken any pictures of the bench from the front.
