Before And After. This Was The Last Piece Of The United Furniture Corp Bedroom Set That I Picked Up Last Year. Now It's A Fantastic Credenza / TV Stand! Status: Headed To Da Booth!
This has become a pretty flexible little piece! It can be used as a bookshelf and display stand, a TV entertainment center or even as a footboard case piece. You could even place this on top of a long dresser or credenza for additional storage and display area. See, flexible!
You might remember this piece from way back when I first started up in the shop in Frenchtown /
Old St. Charles. It was part of a complete bedroom set that got sold off a piece at a time. Only thing
left was the bed. I decided to re-purpose the case on top of the headboard and be rid of the rest. It
was a full and wasn't going to be going anywhere too quick anyway.
So I think the bed gave it's life for a worthy cause, don't you? This looks great! If we had the kind of
space that this would work in I'd just keep it for myself! I picked up the hairpin legs last weekend
while at the South County Antique Mall. This headboard was the first thing I thought of when I
spotted them. I've got tons of taller hairpin legs but most are taller than these.
This set of legs turned out to be the perfect height. The only decision left was their orientation. I
might have tried to splay them all out at 45 degree angles but I thought the 180 degree apposed
"George Nelson" look might be best. I've been looking for a cheap broken flat panel TV on craigslist
to display in my booth on pieces like this. No luck so far but I'm nothing if not persistent. I'll have
one soon enough. Obviously the one above was edited in, just to give you an idea of what it might
look like with a TV on it. I might have enough time to drop this off at Creve Coeur tomorrow, but I
can't promise anything. Watch my Twitter...if I make it, it'll be on there first!
