Fashion Forward: A very savvy TV stand

TV Stand Savvy Young Something

When Sarah of Savvy Young Something sent us an email to highlight a few of her Goodwill DIY projects, it was a match made in heaven. Here you have a smart Goodwill shopper with a ton of patience for a big project that was a smashing success.

Can she make one for me?!

Sarah found this sturdy dresser at her nearby Goodwill in Arlington, VA and instantly saw its potential. In a pinch, I would have taken this dresser as-is—after all, it’s got lots of storage space and the wood is in good overall shape.

But Sarah took it to the next level.

I won’t give away the surprise ending to this DIY project, but I’ll give you a few hints: the end result involves beautiful bright pink paint, delicate glass knobs, and a little magic with some hinges.

Go see the finished product on her blog! And never fear, DIY newbies: Sarah admits she had this piece for quite some time before she dove into the re-do. And she even owns up to her trial-and-error moments (from which she emerged quite victorious!).

If you shop Goodwill in Arlington or Falls Church, you might see Sarah hanging around in the furniture department, looking for her next project!
