I confess, we are one of those couples whose dining table is their coffee table. We have a real dining room, with a wonderful dining table, but we never eat there. We eat in front of the TV. Though it’s not ideal, after a long day of work, sometimes all you really want is to sit together, with no need for conversation. Because of this, I was really sick of staring at everything around the TV – which included the cheap TV stand I bought years ago when I got my studio apartment (sans doors, as they had fallen off after all the moving around), as well as tons of cords for the speaker / tv / media system. So,when most women ask for jewelry and clothing etc for their birthdays, I asked that we spend time remodeling this wall. The project began in March, and we finally finished enough to post pics this past weekend.
I hated the previous setup so much that I didn’t even take before photos, so instead I’ll show you a photo from our last holiday party, where the ugly TV cabinet is in the background of all my super friends in their fun “recycled” holiday attire.
