No, not for David and me, we'll be apartment bound for awhile yet. At least until we decide where we want to live. But, our TV got a new home this weekend. We moved into our apartment exactly two years ago and this was suppose to be our temporary arrangement for the TV:
This did the job, but it wasn't very nice looking. You can see all the cords hanging down in the back, and no matter how hard I tried I just couldn't hide them.
I went rummage saling this weekend and ran across this:
I came home and asked Dave if he thought we could find a way to get a TV stand home if I bought it. He said we could so I went back to the sale and bought it. We borrowed my brother-in-law's pickup so we could bring it home. I really wanted to paint it black, but since we don't have lawn space of our own we decided it would be easiest to just spruce it up. So I painted the inside black, stained the shelves, and fixed up the nicks on the bottom. I gave it a good scrubbing with some wood soap and Dave made a hole in the back for the cords to go through. Now our TV sits on this:
Not bad for $5, eh? Now, I just need to find some "pretties" to put in the bottom. I got a few other goodies while I was out too.
The cutting board was .10 and as I was walking away from the sale I found a dime on the ground. So, technically it was free! I'm planning on doing some sort of project with it. I paid .75 for the tall bucket thing, it still has the original price tag on it for 15.95. The apothecary jar was 25 cents. I got nine of those square, black mirrors for $4 and the lamp for $1 at Goodwill. I'll post the items again later when I have them finished.
