TV Storage - a better option

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Does anyone remember these shelves that were originally planned to hold the TV equipment?  I honestly don't blame you one bit if you have forgotten this ugly duckling.



As luck would have it, shortly after I finished painting the shelves, an even better option presented itself.  Before I go there, here are the shelves after being painted.  I have no doubt that they will find a spot somewhere in our house - for the storage alone.




Now back to the better option...

I found a cabinet at a sale in the mountains that I thought would be perfect for holding the electronics that go along with having a TV.  The only problem is that I didn't buy it.  Long story short, the cabinet now belongs to me - thank you Mom and Darrell.    And let's just say that timing is everything because a man was about to buy everything that was left in the house - including the cabinet. 



Here is the new (to me) cabinet.  I love how funky and old it is and the brass is even better in person.  It needs a little TLC, but not much.  I'm so glad to finally wrap up this hole TV switcheroo thing and finally hide the cords, etc. for once and for all.  I will share pictures once everything is in place.

  13. Who doesn't need a small bookshelf -- love how you painted the inside grey. And your little cabinet? Total knockout. I'd kill for that thing.
    Will you post more pictures of your living room after you get it installed with the TV. I want to see how everything fits together.
