TV Stand Redo using PVC Pipe by Chris & Amy

We have a large brown sectional couch in our main living room with red accents, but I felt like the brown was taking over. Our couch, tv stand and side tables are brown, I could not take it any longer!! So I decided to paint our tv stand to give the room a pop of color.
I started by painting the tv stand with a primer. I only used one coat, I should have used two because I had to give the stand 3 coats of red. After the 3 coats of red, I took PVC pipe ( with the help of my amazing brother in law) and cut 1/4 inch pieces. I sprayed painted the PVC rings oil rubbed bronze. Once I created a design I was satisfied with, I started hot glueing each piece....Here it is...



Materials/Cost:
Primer: Had from previous projects
PVC pipe: $2 (Home Depot)
3 paint samples: $9 (Lowes-Posh Red)
Oil Rubbed Bronze Spray Paint: Had from previous projects

We are happy with the outcome and love the pop of color! Hope you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by:)

Amy & Chris!!

  8. What a cool idea -- it's so inspiring to see humble materials like PVC pipe used in way cool ways. I also love the red -- makes that corner stand out instead of blending into the shadows.
