My living room was really bothering me. There was a dark glass tv unit that was gathering dust like it got payed for it. I knew it for long time that I was going to change it one day. Not only the dust, but I didn't like the way it looked either. Too dark for my eyes, nothing like cosy. It had to go.
I decided about this in the summer, but it all depended on my luck to find the perfect one in any of the local charity shops. I have been religiously dropping in those shops every now and then, I mean almost daily, just in case some new furniture arrived, without any luck.
There was a day when I was really supposed to clean above mentioned glass tv unit, but I felt like it was easier to move all the furnitures around, do some table switches between me and my daughter and after giving her my smaller work table I got hold of her 2 small tables. I needed one of them for my printer, which was originally on the table I gave her, and I used the other one for the tv. It looked ridiculous. I haven't even made a photo of that arrangement. But it made me feel so amazingly good! :)
After these changes I was sure that my dream tv stand was waiting for me in one of those shops. One week later there it was. I was not even surprised. But extremely happy. :) I already had the paint that I planned to use, so between some crocheting I started to work on the cosy tv stand project.
Now that it's all done and got a new place in the living room standing really proudly, I can say that the main problem here is solved and I finally feel happy being in this room. It feels like home. Can't wait to decorate it for Christmas :)
