shabby tv cabinet…

when the flat screen tvs first came out, there weren’t many options for tv cabinets.  we found this shabby tv cabinet at an antique shop in rochester, indiana, –green oaks.  
because they use old shutters, tin, moldings, and headers, each piece is one of a kind.   this one is made of a pressed tin back, an old table top holds the tv, and there is huge header across the top.

and  if its not needed to hold the tv. there is another shelf that can be added to showcase pottery, books, whatever.
below is another style of cabinet I have from the same place.  it uses old porch posts and scalloped trim.

It was bought last year.We needed a place to put it.We already had a center which holds all of our movies,music etc.We bought a piece to fit with it.So I am stuck with it.Maybe I can at least paint it hmmmmm.You just gave me some ideas on how I may be able to spruce it up.It will be on my future to do list.

  7. You have such a pretty home and these pieces fit in so well with your decor. I like the fence posts added to the front of the shelf, they really dress it up!

  14. Hello Lynn! I miss you! I hope your home remodeling is going well for you.
    I think that TV stand is beautiful, and of course one-of-a-kind. By the photo of your living room, I'd think I was looking at a home furnishings catalog!

  15. Both pieces are gorgeous, but I especially love the tv cabinet Lynn.
    There is an online store in the UK selling vintage tin tiles at £150 each - that's about $225 !! Can you believe it. They must come from the States I guess, as we don't really have tin tiles over here. They look great in the back of the cabinet.
