In addition to Juneathon and unpacking from my recent move, my roommates and I have been busy renovating (for lack of a better term) an old entertainment center I found in my parents basement.
It’s from the late 80s/early 90s, as evidenced by it being particle board with a wood laminate. Perhaps not the highest quality, nor the best looking, but hey it does the job.
Here it is in 1993.
Then, fast forward about 18 years and here it is again on May 16, 2011 – in a storage room in my parents basement.
Like I said, it’s not the most attractive looking thing, but it gets the job done. With the help of my older sister, I loaded this up in my car and brought it down to Lincoln, NE. And so, in our “spare” time, my roommates and I sanded it,
and painted it.
We’re very much impressed with our work, especially when we compare it to the scrapped pieces…
All in all, I say it’s a job well done. But the best part is that we can finally watch TV upstairs!
The TV is also a recovered object from my parents basement. Gotta love free stuff!
