The cheap pressed - board TV stand!

I love slapping paint on stuff!!
I end up wearing more than on the object to be painted!!
 I went online and purchased a 5.oo cheap
pressed board TV stnad with wheels.
I sanded the heck outa that thing to get the shine off!!
It has a middle shelf that I removed so I could work on it
After the slappped on paint dried ...
I ran to the Dollar Tree!
I snatched up a bunch of plastic bins with handles and these cute
baskets in the lime green color.  The sweet decals also came from DT.
I ended up spending way too much money!!

Here is the top of the shelf.
Cute right?
Here is a side profile.
I deliberately placed the flowers cockeyed. 
I'm thinking I may embellish the stand with some
grass using green acrylic paint.

Here is a front view.
I'm also going to put some type of protective clear coat on the
stand to protect it from scratches and nicks and little fingers trying
to pick off the decals.

Voila!! How cute right?  Do you think I should leave the back open or
maybe get some super cute material and stapel on the back .. sort of
like a curtain or should I just leave it alone?
The top of the stand will also have some baskets for toys or what have you.
I had som much fun doing this project.  It was really cold outside but it took only one and a half days to finish.  As I mentioned I still need to put a protective finish to protect the decals but  it turned out cute!  I can hardly wait to put it in my grand-darlings bedroom!

My photo
I love shabby,used,chipped,white,old,vintage, antique,junky gently loved stuff. I would love to dumpster dive but I could get a citation from the county. I adore my dogs, my grand kids and bathing in my tub outside. I am sensitive, eager to make friends although self conscious about it. I am faithful and very very generous at heart. I cry over stuff sentimental and sweet. I adore April Cornell clothing (although I can't afford her stuff)and anything sheer and vintage and loose. I'd live in my pj's and never ever wear a bra again. I love the beach and dancing in public places with my grand darlings and day time babies. I adore my kids and love my hubby although I could kill him a time or two. Yard sales and thrift stores are my died and gone to heaven activities. I love to spend money on these but usually am broke.
