Our House: The Living Room, Media Stand

After months of hitting my favorite consignment/thrift shops and trolling Craig's List on a regular basis I've finally made a decision on a media stand.  The very kind Heidi from Lily Field Furniture found it for me on Craig's List after I'd somehow managed it miss it, even with the title of "HUGE Dresser or Buffet" (and since size was always the issue I'm baffled on how I managed to miss it).

Anyway, hopefully in about a week this beauty will be in place:

In this color, Annie Sloan paint in Graphite:

(please ignore the puppy blanket!)

Heidi started looking for a piece for me after I commented on one she posted on Facebook that sold in a matter of hours.  Once she procured this one (with me in mind but knowing she could easily sell it if I wasn't in love) she was incredibly patient during my week of deliberations and mixed at least four different test colors for me trying to get me to the perfect dark charcoal.   I'm excited to see the finished result and really curious to see for myself how the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint holds up.

To be continued....
