New TV Media Stand for Creating with the Stars Contest

Standard

I’ve been wanting to start a blog, but I am still having some difficulties with a self hosted blog.  Time is definitely running out because I had to get something up and going so I could enter the East Coast Creative Blog contest of Creating With The Stars.  So enter a free wordpress.com blog site.  I figure I can move it over once I get all the bugs worked out.  We are really hoping our project is selected in their competition.

We finally finished our TV Media stand.  WooHoo!!!  It took several years because we had ideas floating around in our head, but couldn’t pin anything down.  Finally it all came together.   Some old windows, old barn lumber (from a barn we tore down years ago), old tin, and some metal.

I drew up our idea, and my super talented hubby welded the basic frame.  I cut pieces of  barn lumber to make the top, trim out the front and sides, and cover the metal legs.  I also gently sanded to old window frames and coated it and all the lumber with a sanding sealer.  We made the sides out of old rusty tin, and had new panes cut for the windows.

It has a space for all of our media items as well as a few decor items.

Now we have an original piece of furniture that we built!  We love it!

About Shannon

I'm a working mom who has a love for repurposing on the cheap. I work full time, take care of an elderly aunt and uncle, and still find time to fuel my creative juices. My hubby, G, is my greatest partner in marriage and creativity. He loves to weld and create out of metal. Together we cover all kinds of projects. I'm an engineer, and he builds equipment for manufacturing. So together we make an awesome team! We love to go junkin' to jump start our creative side on things we can make for our home. It's now becoming a family affair with the kids. They are really getting into creating items from stuff we find at flea markets. Both kids have picked up on the welding aspect, so now it's my turn to learn. I love to see their creativity blossom! Come look around this site, and join us on our creative adventure! We hope we encourage you to take that step and just get started. It's all about setting your creative spirit free!
