Remember When-sday...

Do you remember console TV's?  Your parents, or maybe even you yourself, owned one.  Admit it.  We know you did.  My mom owns one and it still works, too!  Once the television part of it does finally decide to cash it in, I know exactly what she should do with it.

She should turn it over to Angie from Miss-Tints.  She transforms them into something pretty spectacular.  

Here's Angie mid-way through today's featured flip...


She collaborated on this project with her friend Cindy.  Cindy had the TV and removed all of the electronic parts of it.  Then she turned it over to Angie to work her magic on it.

Angie says that she tries to keep her budget low when working on new pieces.  To that end, she limits her out of pocket expenses and one way she does that is to buy only mis-tint paint.  Hence her business name, Miss-Tints.  I LOVE that!  So clever!   

Are you ready to see what she did to this TV?  Call your doggie over because he is gonna want to see this, too!!


How flippin' CUTE is that!?!  The pictures on the wall of this doggy bed were even handmade.  The attention to detail is amazing.  I bet you don't look at another curbside console TV in the same way ever again!  (I passed one just last week!)

Angie aka Miss-Tints is located in the Indianapolis, Indiana area and loves to repurpose old furniture.  Check out her Facebook page to see more of her work, give her a "like" and let her know you saw her here.

Thanks so much Angie for sharing your very unique furniture flip!

  1. OMG... Genius. I am going to do one of these (I hope she doesn't mind me copying her idea... I will check with her just in case) Love that it is all distressed... perfect shabby chic for that shabby chic fanatic's home. Well done

  3. Hi Angie, you've created an adorable trend! The 2nd hand store said that I was the 2nd person to buy one on their consoles for this. Did you use something to remove the varnish or did you sand it down?

    Thanks,
    Excited to get started!!!
