We have a 70″ television (A.K.A. decorating NIGHTMARE) in our family room. It used to be in the basement, but the truth is…we don’t like being in the basement. It seemed like a waste to have a really nice tv that we never watched for the sake of decorating. Plus, I have three sports fanatics who I love more than I love a pretty family room. So…compromise time.
This is how it looked until today sitting on that YOO-GLY glass media stand. (Actually this photo was taken as my hubby was dismantling it, but you get the idea). See the problem??? 5 components and the cords…oh for the love of Pete, the cords. There was just no place to hide them.
See this bad boy? I found him at Goodwill for $24.99. He’s big (72″ wide), sturdy and in perfect condition. Just in need of a little updating.
So I got my favorite teenager to remove all the hardware as I got busy painting.
I painted it in an oil based black paint and sprayed the hardware in Rustoleum’s Satin Nickel.
The best part besides the fact that it’s pretty? The storage!!! Boy, do I love all those drawers to hold the bazillion remotes, xBox stuff, games, CD’s, DVD’s, extra cords and cables, etc!
Result? Happy sports fanatics watching the Sugar Bowl…happy me not looking at that crappola glass television stand.
It’s all about compromise!
