Revamping a Mid Century Modern Chest of Drawers into a Media Center


Using a $15 thrift store find, I created an under-TV stand for electronics as well as a charging station for my mobile devices. The drawers are used for seasonal accessories (hats, scarves, gloves) as well as spare blankets. Total project cost was under $60!

$15 mid century modern dresser turned into a media center.
The top shelves, which I upholstered, hold electronics and a charging station.
I replaced the original veneer top with an oak slab which I stained and polyed.
