On today’s WWYD with this Wednesday, I’m asking for your advice on updating some of my furniture. I just got a new TV cabinet, and I want to turn the old one, a cheap pine armoire into a cabinet for my sewing supplies. I’m planning to install a pull-out shelf inside for my sewing machine for quick mending, but I’m trying to figure out what to do with the outside. I’m tired of the aged pine and it’s getting pretty beat up.
Tell me your idea in 250 characters or fewer on the MckLinky tool below. And feel free to include a link to an idea that you’ve already done on your own blog, or just link up to your blog so we can check out your other great ideas. I’ll name a WWYD winner next week based on the idea I like best.
Sorry, I can’t afford prizes, but I’m happy to tweet your name and send you some blog traffic!
3-9-2010 Update: Contrats to Jill S. for the winning idea. I think that the lighter finish would keep the large pieces from feeling too heavy in the room. I’ll be priming with black, painting with white and then sanding to distress. Honorable mention goes to The Prudent Homemaker for the great idea of replacing the knobs. I forget how much of a difference that can make. Thanks everyone!

I would do the cherry finish on all of them, and change out the pine knobs on the two pine pieces to something else, like a rustic broze finish.
