Painted Entertainment Stand in Hale Navy

It is on a daily basis that I get asked questions either about a project that I have worked on in the past or a person has their own project they’d like some advice on. I’m eager to help and try to be informative. This time around, however, I am able to physically help out a local follower with this piece she had. Her second-hand find is about to become a painted entertainment stand. Check it out.

Entertainment Stand Before Makeover |

Kathryn contacted me about this entertainment stand via social media per suggestion through some friends of hers. Originally, she asked for advice on how she could paint this the easiest way. My first advice to her was to prime and paint using a Round Brush to get into all those nooks and crevices, since she didn’t own a sprayer.

Eventually, a few weeks went by and she mentioned she still hadn’t tackled the stand and wondered if I’d have a go at it. I’ll be honest, it’s not often I take on custom work because I’m always so busy. However, this time around I knew I had just the thing to get it done quickly with the best finish.


The day that Kathryn dropped off the stand, I was eager to take a peek at this ornate piece. She mentioned that she had removed the doors and had two broken teardrop pulls. At first glance, I saw that this was basically a mix of manufactured wood and real wood. So, it’s not a high end piece, but who would know, right? It sure looks sweet, though that finish is…well…horrid.

It has a super thick glossy poly on it that was kinda a hot mess, which can make it hard to get a smooth finish when concerned with all those details. You don’t want build-up and drips.

First, I used my sander to lightly sanded down the existing drips, and also the surfaces that would take the most wear. Then, once I had it prepped, it’s time to break out my favorite HomeRight Super Finish Max Extra Sprayer! [it’s at this point I have hands on my hips with cape flying behind me and sprayer in hand with dramatic music playing! Think Super Mama…gotta have fun. tsk.]

Notice that I also have the stand set up in my Medium Spray Shelter and also on my handy DIY Furniture Turn Table (tutorial HERE). Take a peek at all my past sprayer projects in these posts.

Tools certainly make the job easy and professional. I’m a tool lover and remember my motto: #TOOLSOVERJEWELS {{fist pump}}


Okay, so we are now ready to go. First order of business is to get that Gripper primer on. Why Gripper? Well, like I mentioned, we have a super thick topcoat to go over. Plus, Kathryn will be using this daily and has small children too, so you know it will take on much wear. You can see other applications I’ve used it on HERE.

I simply fill my canister with primer and thin per manufacturer directions suggests. While spraying, I make sure to move with my elbow, not my wrist. It’s important to begin spray before you hit your surface, and continue to spray until off. Also, I make sure my flow is set properly before beginning by practicing on a scrap piece of wood or cardboard.

Then, when done I let the primer cure, and clean my sprayer so it’s ready for the next round. The primer is already making this look so much better, don’t you think?

Now for the fun! Because this painted entertainment stand is a custom piece for Kathryn, she is choosing the color and I second the nomination. BLUE. Isn’t this a gorgeous color? It’s called Hale Navy and is custom mixed into a satin paint.

Again, just like before, I follow manufacturer instructions and fill my sprayer canister. The stand is getting two coats of paint, so I want to make sure my undercoat is as good as the finish coat.

Doesn’t this make you go oooh…?


Finally, after all is cured the painted entertainment stand is ready to take center stage.

Doesn’t that satin blue look perfect? The details of the wood really pop out now. Kathryn had picked out the replacement knobs in a soft silver – a beautiful contrast.

Also, for a bit of fun, I suggested that Kathryn pick a contrasting color for the interior of the cabinet. It would have been to dark to use the blue in there as well, so she decided on a soft green I custom mixed. It’s the same color I used on my upcycled chest into map cabinet.

I had to giggle at one point when going over colors and such with Kathryn. She said, “Wow, how long have you been doing this?” Well, let’s just say over 7 years in blog land, but color and design have always been my thing in every area in my life. Isn’t it fun to look back into our past to see our journey to today? Both the good and bad bring us right to where we are. I’m so glad to have worked with Kathryn.

    Wow! The blue is absolutely beautiful. I haven’t attempted much with spraying furniture, but I sure like the outcome. Part of the reason is that I don’t have a good way to do it without getting overspray on everything in my workshop! So the shelter would be “the cat’s meow” shall I say?! You make it look so easy Larissa! I am so inspired by all that you do. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of following your blog. 🙂

    Absolutely love it! I have an ancient buffet that would look great in this color! Quick rookie question. I can imagine my sons and grandsons moving the TV on the stand in all different directions depending where they are sitting. When do you put a poly finish on? Only when staining or can it be done after priming and painting too?if I want to really protect my projects from the boys (their famous line is “Well, I didn’t know” when they scratch something. Trying to be Super Gramma but don’t want to do all that work only to have the boys scratch it up (inadvertently of course lol). Love your posts always!

      Thanks! You most certainly can, though keep in mind most polys yellow over time (I’ve tried them all and not a one doesn’t amber). However, with darker colors it’s harder to tell. I hear ya as a mama to 8…gotta do whatcha gotta do! 😀

      No worries! Though, like you said, in person it wasn’t yellow. It was the poly that ambered over time which doesn’t look very pretty…like kinda tacky (in the sticky sense) 😉 This sprayer is the best!

    I am hoping to get my mother’s via her grand-mother’s Singer treadle sewing machine cabinet painted. I have had it primed for a couple of years and life got in the way.

    I have so many projects that need painting but it’s too hot for me outside. I could set this tent up in my basement and spray paint away.

    The cabinet turned out so pretty. Love the hale blue color. I have several pieces of furniture that i need to paint. This sprayer would make the job so much faster.

    Love this project! It is gorgeous. Being able to spray paint have it a beautiful finish. If I had a spray tent, i would first tackle a side 4able for living room.

    Another example of how a coat or 2 of paint can turn an ugly duckling into a “Thing” of beauty. I absolutely love how the cabinet was transformed into something the owner would be proud to use in their media room.

    I forgot to mention in my first post that the first project(s) I would tackle with the spray booth would be a 2 piece wooden set for my family room which includes a corner shelf and coffee table.

    Gorgeous! I’m just curious as to your painting technique for the inside of the cabinet. Did you do that with a brush and you suggest painting the inside after the outside, correct?
    And if I had one of these shelters, I would pretty much paint anything that was standing still!!! HAHA

    • Larissa

      Thanks! Normally I spray first the inside, then tape it off and do the outside. She decided on the inside after I had started the out side, so I did it with my favorite brushes. You sound like me…bwahaha!!:D

    I really love the color on this tv stand, what an improvement with just paint! I have a bunch of smalls I need to paint. I had no idea they had a medium size, just small and large. We have some much wind here that I am thinking of checking into something like this. Have a great day!

    Beautiful Workmanship as always! Question: You mentioned that when you paint the inside first, you tape off and then spray the outside. To “tape off,” do you put tape around the inside of the cabinet door frame and then close the door? If so, I’m wondering how much spray enters the cabinet since you can’t press the tape down on the inside against the doors after you close them?

    October 16, 2019 at 2:31 pm Reply
    • Larissa

      When I paint the color inside a contrasting color, I paint the inside, then, depending on if I want the door sides the same as the exterior, I tape off for that when I do the exterior. I didn’t get any inside on this one, and if I did I can touch up with a brush too. Really super easy.
