SHOW AND TELL MONDAY

This week's show and tell is an entertainment center I just transformed from an ugly duckling into a beautiful entertainment center that I'm using at Cozy Cottage. I purchased it at a very good price at a local thrift store and after a coat of white spray paint I tugged it into the house where I brushed on two coats of my favorite Antique White satin latex paint.

I also added the pretty little crown on the top. In went the tv and satellite box and a few "for sale" items were added for decor and "ta-da"!

PS: Bet you can't see that I live on a country road!

Fabulous job. Isn't paint the best. I love seeing vintage "uglies" go from trash to treasure. And I keep forgeting to tell you, I love your blog header. It's so inviting.

Hi Debbie ~
I know how much work it is to paint large furniture items. You did a great job! I love the wood embellishment on top ~ it really adds a cottage flair.
