Farmhouse Audio/Video Console

Originally manufactured by Martin Furniture this Audio/Video Console got an update. After 10 years my client was ready to give her heavy duty Costco TV unit a Second Chance by doing a Farmhouse style. You can tell she was really wanting to update this piece instead of buying something new, flimsy and expensive. She compromised with her hubby and had him pick out the color stain for the top. I think they both made a great team and I was excited to get to work creating what they envisioned!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and lightly distressed. Because the wood is mahogany, I used a couple coats of White stain and then a topcoat of Charcoal Gray stain that way our top would end up gray and not red or pink from the natural wood color. Original glass and knobs cleaned. Speaker screen thrown out, giving this gal another shelf to use!
