I shared a few days ago that we ripped out our fireplace, all because of a great Black Friday deal on a flat screen HDTV. So, we were left with a few holes in the wall, some raw drywall and a patch of plywood on the floor. The pressure was on to find something to put under the TV before the TV arrived, because you know that thing was going on the wall within 8 minutes of it crossing over our threshold. When I was at Lucketts on Thursday, I had the thumb’s up from my husband to look for a piece that would work. I kept passing a French provincial buffet, but it looked like it was going to be too big. After looking around some more and not finding anything else, I went back to the buffet. I loved the color, the shape, the wood top and the storage configuration was perfect to use as a TV console.
I decided it was worth getting out the tape measure to see if it would work. I called my husband and we determined it would be perfect. The dealer gave me an amazing deal on it and even agreed to rearrange her space, so I could take it with me that day. When we got it home and set it in the space, we knew it was perfect. Even better than I thought it would be.
We removed two of the top drawers to use the recesses as cubbies for the components. I’m going to paint the insides of them once I know what color the vendor used on the piece.
It felt a little foreign for me to purchase a piece that was already painted, but it is so perfect as it is.
I’ve always wanted a piece with metal fretwork on it as well. That was a little bonus in my mind.
I am starting to love my family room and kitchen as those spaces continue to develop…
…and I don’t miss that fireplace one little bit.
