Up-cycled Mid Century TV Stand

We love mid-century furniture but we are also young and on a tight budget with our first place together, so we love to go to flea-markets and thrift stores to find priceless furniture pieces that we can update. We found this mid-century TV stand/small dresser and really wanted to make it look chic so we sanded it down with our RYOBI sander, applied primer, sanded it down some more with finer grit paper, and painted it a shade of yellow. We then spray painted the legs half way down with gold metallic paint, giving it a "dipped-in-paint" look. It didn't take too long, the longest aspect of the project was waiting for the paint to dry. The sanding was actually really easy and barely took any time!
