Happy Monday!I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and that, if you’ve got winter weather today, you are safe, warm, and dry wherever you are.
I’ve been meaning to share this new addition to our lives since last month, but, well, other things (including a Christmas tree) got in the way.
In the fall, Chris took a wood shop class on Wednesday nights at our local tech school. We really wanted a built in cabinet to go under the floating shelves he built next to the fire place, because we didn’t really have any place for the cable box/dvd player/etc.
This is what the space looked like after he built the floating shelves. We actually had the cable box and everything on to tv stands (mildly embarrassing), and not all of our components were even there.
Fast forward to mid-December, and we had this!
So. much. better. The doors are frosted glass since the cable box and everything are inside; remotes wouldn’t have worked through wood, but they do through the frosted glass.
While you can still sort of see through it, especially when something is lit up, the frosted glass does a decent job of hiding the mess that’s inside
You can see that there are four shelves built in, which are height adjustable, and they’re holding the cable box, dvd player, video game units and games, movies, cds, and extra remotes. So much better!
This room is nearing completion…this summer, I’ll paint the fireplace; I don’t want to do it until I can open the windows, because I’m pretty sure the primer will be stanky. Some of the tiles in front of the fireplace are loose, so we’ll have to re-tile there as well. I’d also like to buy a new rug for the room, and we need to get all the floors in the house refinished, but then that’s all for the living room!
ps…anyone else notice that every picture I take seems to be crooked? Is this how I naturally stand?!
