This past weekend Daniel got to work on a little project for our living room. We have a strange little corner in our living room that's a little tight, but really the only place to put a tv. We've been on the hunt for a piece of furniture to go in this little spot for months, with no luck. Anything we actually liked was $500 or more, so since August our TV has been sitting on a dining room chair. Daniel also wanted something that would accommodate his fancy speakers, and a record player he wants to purchase eventually.
A few months back i found the perfect mid century legs at my favorite antique store in Greensboro. They were 5 bucks a piece, and I knew we'd use them for something at some point. With the weather finally getting warmer, Daniel decided to just build a custom Tv stand. After a trip to Home depot, and a few sketches, Daniel got to work out on the driveway.
I let Daniel run with this one, and all I did was pick the color of the wood stain.
Also, please note 'classic Daniel' here- using power tools while wearing flip flops. I know that someday this will end up badly. (can someone please help me win this battle of convincing him to stop doing this???)
It turned out amazing, and I love it more than I could have imagined. It's super functional, fits the corner perfectly, and I can't believe Daniel whipped it up in just a few hours. For under $70 total, it's my new favorite piece of furniture.
