Marriage of the Mismatched Finishes...

Hello all...I found this beautiful buffet and thought....maybe just maybe I could pair it with
this mirrored back pine hutch...
so a little celery paint later...
yes, even over the mirrored back.

I think they were meant for each other....

Add some distressing and chocolaty glaze...
move them into their new home.

Slap a big ol' flat screen TV on the hutch...
stand back and admire what a handsome
couple they truly are.
Yes, a match made in heaven
(or my garage).
I think they will be very happy
in the years to come.
They are already enjoying their
first Christmas together.

Seriously though, hubby has wanted a
flat screen for a long time.
I was fighting him though, because
they just seem a bit to contemporary
for my taste. So, I decided if I could find the right piece
of furniture for it I would consider it.
I think I found it!
It's also great to keep all of the DVD's
Wii games and such stored and organized.
We are all happy now,
except when I want to watch HGTV and
he wants to watch football.
It's our new favorite hang out!
Merry Christmas
to our family and us!

  6. Great way to store the t.v. and it looks beautiful above all! I can imagine it was a lot of work but well worth it. Looks great in your room! xx

  7. Hi there! :) I wanted to get back with you to let you know where my Mom bought the glitter village she put in her tree. Grandin Road sold them in their catalog last year...but I'm not sure if they are still sold there??

    Anyways, I'm so happy I came to your blog. I am blown away by your talent! And this is perfect, SO beautiful. What a big task to accomplish...I can't even imagine. Love the color too.

  8. Oh my goodness! I love this. I don't personally own a new flatscreen. We bought our huge tv right at the onset of flat screen mania (and it won't die) But! my daughter has one and is looking for something to satisfy the hubby/man thing and satisfy her need to be pretty thing... She'll love this too!

    Thanks for posting it. I found you at MMS--fff

  9. I've been thinking of painting an old mirror, now I think I will. Thanks for your great reno ideas.

  10. What a fantastic idea, you pulled it all together brilliantly! The colour is gorgeous too. Well done :)

    I, too have painted over mirrors in the back of cabinets before, it feels kind of rebellious but really makes a great change to the piece!

  11. Wow! It looks like it was made like that. You did a fantastic job!!!! Can't wait to check out you older posts.

  12. What a perfect pairing! It looks fabulous.

  13. What a great idea! I would lovwe for you to come link this up at my Strut Your Stuff party!

  14. That turned out beautiful with such a "custom" look to it! :)

  15. What a great alternative to hanging a TV on the wall. I find they are always an eye sore but you really made a home for the tv. Very practical and beautifully executed.

  16. Wow I love what you did. This is so beautiful. I'm amazed.
    Having a little blog giveaway for a $20 Home Depot giftcard if anyone is interested.

  17. What a fabulous creation for something we ALL have. This puts anything TV related from a store to absolute shame. LOVE!


  18. What a wonderful job!!!! Love the paint color and the red accessories and funiture just make it pop...

  19. What a fabulous creation and look you pulled together! Love your entire family room. Happy Holidays from your latest follower. Do stop by when you can...and I love making new friends.

  20. Wow! You painted over the mirrors? I would have never thought of that.
    It looks wonderful. I love all things green ;)

  21. Perfect! Just perfect! And, with all those touches of red in the room, it looks even better! I copied the photo for my "someday" file.

  22. Stunning job!!! Absolutely beautiful! Hope you'll come link up to Made with Love Monday :) The party will be open until Friday so feel free to link up multiple projects. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  23. That is awesome! I love that you paired the two pieces together - you can't even tell they are different. They look like they were meant to be together!

  24. This is my kind of project. Thanks for posting!
