Progress is good

2 @ 3/4 " sheets of MDF , cut at Home Depot created the structure , divisions and shelves , 3" primed MDF trim , 1 1/2" MDF trim , baseboard trim , and chair rail trim is all that it has taken so far to build this substantial island that will seat 4. So far a total of $206.00 , not bad for almost there huh , tomorrow they will pick up the butcher block top , they already have the doors , which were hand me downs , fantastic, and then a couple of brackets for the over hand , some magic of paint and it will be amazing. The butcher block is expected to total $269.00 that is $12.00 a sq ft , I am hoping they will score a deal in the AS IS dept like I did , for $50 or $60 , crossing my fingers. An island for under $500.00 , that is truly amazing , I see them for around $1000.00 most often.
The TV cabinet is coming together so nicely, maybe my clients won't like it and I will have to keep it for myself , boooo , :)

Doesn't it look pretty as an open cabinet ? I am crazy about this piece.

I love both projects! I am convinced about the power of paint!

Not to be picky...did you notice that you put the drawer pulls on upside down? Maybe it was intentional.

It turned out great! The color really changed the overall look! :)

Funny enough our end tables and sideboard have a similar look. They are from the Ethan Allen Collection circa 1960 and were my husband's grandparents. I've been wanting to replace them or paint them b/c right now they just look outdated but have so much potential.
