Repurposed TV Stand

Piece by piece, my living room is slowly coming together! 
Shortly after Steven and I moved in, my mother-in-law gave us a nightstand she picked up at a yard sale. Steven removed the top drawer, cut out a hole in the back for wires, and we have been using it as the TV stand in our living room.
When my mom came to town, we decided to give this old nightstand new life with a little paint job and distressing. We sanded it, applied three coats of paint, and then slightly distressed it.
I love the finished product! 
This new look is a much better fit for the overall feel I want for our living room! 
Now, if only we had a furnace in that fireplace...  :)
