Last winter, we did something we've not ever done in our (now) 28 years of marriage......added a TV in our bedroom! I really don't know why....we had no particular conviction or thoughts on it; we just never did. But you know men and their power tools and their electronic equipment! Jason decided we needed a TV for our bedroom and when he decided, he decided BIG! We went shopping and came home with a LCD 42" flat screen TV.
Now you can imagine how that massive black thing with a mounted Blue-Ray DVD player under it, with cords hanging down, looked on our bedroom wall.....nothing really decorative or romantic at all about it. But, I'll have to admit, we've enjoyed having it....whether it's just us or with the kids piled up in the bed with us watching movies together. There's just something cozy about it! (And we don't have cable or satellite or anything, only movies we decide we want to watch. That keep us in control of the TV, instead of the TV controlling us).
I've envisioned a cabinet for it since I first saw it hanging on that wall last January, but being knee deep in adoption paperwork last year and saving every penny we could for it, the building of the cabinet was pushed to the back burner.
However, I can tell you it was worth the wait. Jason just decided a few weeks ago that it was time to build it; he had a little time off and got super busy!
Here's a (before) pic of the big black blob on our bedroom wall!
Here's the cabinet freshly built.
After paint.....a color called summer tan, and a little distressing with mocha glaze.
And the new cabinet on our bedroom wall.
Quite an improvement from the ugly massive piece of electronic equipment on the wall, huh? I chose this color because although we're not even close to redoing our bedroom, I have a vision for it including a different paint color for the walls (than I would normally choose) and I wanted this cabinet to have a country/primitive flavor but a lighter look. And it blends fairly well with what's in there now.
Needless to say, my favorite carpenter got a big hug and kiss for that one! I love it! And...he's even got a couple other little projects in progress in the workshop for the kitchen too....and the weekend is here again! But more on that later....
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)
