Hey there! You may remember the first building project that I tackled 2 years ago….
Well, it’s time for me to finally get around to decorating our game room and I am less than motivated by this color! In fact, the rule of thumb that you should never cut your hair when pregnant should also include…or pick out a paint color (at least in my case;) It screams 1st trimester nausea to me every time I look at it!
Fast forward two years later and I finally caved!!!
I am still so in love with this piece after two years and I love it even more with its modern look! I covered up the first trimester green with 2 fresh coats of Behr Cozy Cottage in satin! I also changed out the top and bottom trims for something a little more modern as well as the pulls!
Here’s what I did!
I placed the 1×2’s flat side down on the very top of the unit and let them hang over the edge to be flush with the cove molding. I attached them with Liquid Nails and followed up with a few finishing nails.
I also used Liquid Nails and finishing nails to attach the 1×3 boards for the base trim and I swapped the knobs for my favorite pulls that I purchase at Home Depot for about $5 each. They are a little pricey but oh so worth it!

Thanks so much for stopping by;)
