The new TV is huge, and I grin every time I look at it. Let's just say David Duchovny has never looked this good in my living room. And of course, I love the Broyhill Brasilia credenza even more. It's not as deep as the old TV cabinet, so the room feels bigger.
|Hey, look over here! Don't look at the TV yet!|
This is so much prettier than chucking our junk in the corner and putting a chair in front of it, right?
The Stonehenge sized speakers, circa 1978, annoy me. They simply don't work with this setup. They looked alright with a tall, thin TV cabinet , but they don't work with a long, low credenza. I don't want to get rid of them, because they sound like angels singing and trumpets blaring and the heavens opening in a blaze of glory. But they need to join the witness protection program until we have a home large enough for them. And Keith wants a new receiver, because our current one isn't HDMI compatible. Whatever that means. If it means we get new sound equipment, yippeeeeeeee!!
In the meantime, I've rearranged the living room to make the new setup less awkward. Instead of spreading our small storage pieces around the room, I put them together. Keith's instruments, my craft supplies, and our linens now live in the infamous love corner. Whether or not it's good feng shui, I like it. All the instruments look so Nashville.
|Here's a peek at the credenza of love--and the speakers of shame.|
To do this weekend:
1. Take down the gold mirror above the TV.
2. Wrangle the cords under the credenza and make them invisible.
3. Let Mr. Audio Engineering Degree figure out the speaker situation while I sip a fancy drink.
4. Sew new throw pillows for the sofa (OK, let's be honest - I'm doing that next week!).
How did you set up your TV area? Do you like it, or did you accept that televisions and home entertainment centers look wonky, and go on with life?
