The media console is finally finished. The media console that I loved was this one from Pottery Barn but the price tag was a bit scary. I asked my dad about making a template for a media console and his response was, “why don’t you just buy one”. I knew that would be his response but after a little convincing and pleading he agreed to help.
This was my inspiration from Pottery Barn.
We are in the process of a family room makeover, you might have remembered seeing me nailing planks to the wall about a month ago. Miss Rhoda, from Southern Hospitality, has been helping me and I hope to have the final reveal in a couple weeks !
I did a post before Christmas when we started making the media console. I will do a materials list and tutorial soon.
This is what we came up with,
I painted the cabinet with 1 coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint “French linen” and then mixed 75%Benjamin Moore “white diamond” with 25% ASCP “French linen” for the 2nd coat. I didn’t have ASCP “pure white” so I substituted with the BM “white diamond” .
UPDATE: Be sure to check out our DIY Anthropologie knob tutorial. This do it yourself media console was built on the same premise as our window seat tutorial, just different dimensions. If you are looking to try some Annie Sloan Wax or chalk paint, I got mine from Nancy at Sea Rose Cottage. Look her up, she has a fab store and is sooooo helpful! 🙂
