Sometimes you just have to take a risk and try it to know that it’s not for you.
That was the case here, with this stereo console I made over AGAIN. You see, I originally painted it black. I loved it, but I always wondered “what if”. So, I tried a teal color. I liked it at first, but after a while, it stood out too much. It was all I could see in the foyer. I had to either wear sunglasses in the house, or do something.
I decided to do something.
How do you like our fresh rustic “White Console” now?

Here she is was way back in the beginning. A neighbor had given it to us for free. We ripped out the inside parts and curtains, and repaired what was damaged or missing. I also replaced the knobs with these: Mercury Glass Knobs.
It looked stunning black. Probably still my favorite choice. The only thing I didn’t like was that the trellis in the windows didn’t show up. The x’s blends in and disappear…otherwise, this thing is rustic chic in black. Then again, everything in black is chic.

Then I got brave and painted it a teal color that was very pretty (actually more green in person), but like I mentioned earlier, it was a bit much for my taste. As my youngest use to say as a little girl…”Too spicy. Too spicy.” I prefer more of a classic look.

Here we are back today…
I love it in white because the trellis stands out, and it gives off a clean, fresh vibe. It also looks beautiful up against my “Thrift Store Silver Platter Wall”. Oh, and check out how it accentuates the wood tones in our “DIY Rustic Shutters”.
If you’re wondering why I have stacked wood in the middle, that’s because we have 2 fireplaces and live in Michigan. We love our wood.
***I used Behr Premium Ultra paint in “Swiss Coffee” with eggshell sheen.
