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.

    It looks great, gonna show my husband... We had a beautiful one but because it was old, he didn't want it and took a sledge hammer to it and said it's ok we'll buy another one.. grrr All it needed was a little paint, I was broken hearted..
