So I fixed the last pic... I mess up on the grand finale of course!  Grin

The beaten up, old black entertainment center had to go. I got one of those sleek little ones for the flat screen tv. We were in serious need of more storage for all of my 2 year old daughter's stuff. So the slaughter began...

We eventually came to this... I was going to reattach the other door, then paint and refinish it. It would be like... a weird bench thing with two doors and a shelf in the middle?

Then I realized just how much we needed a toybox. Much to my husband's dismay, I asked him if he could make it work. Somehow... he did!

We chose a bright green and got to work. Here's where the hubby forgot to seal off the top and the white primer ran down. I didn't fix it... I think it looks pretty cool. Smiley

I found the too-good-to-be-true matching tablecloth cover at salvation army for a buck. I got a piece of furniture foam to fit on top and set to staple gunning it on.

Voila! A huge, shelf divided, stays open, comfy bench with a wipeable surface toybox!!

I think I want to start a business in this...

This is great -- it reminds me of those "gamer ottomans" with a space under the cushion, except this is a lot bigger and better looking.

Very cool! I love old entertainment center recons. I love the bright green.

Several years ago my hubby and I took apart his el chepo one and turned it into a bench/organizer that resides in our closent and our computer desk. The desk was a "temporary" fix because we needed one but three years later we're still using it.
