And then came CraigsList to the rescue. I seriously do now what I would do without craigslist. Craigslist is perfect for people like me. I am too lazy on the weekends to get to garage sales that early n the morning to see the good stuff.. So garage saleing... rarely works in my favor. But Craigslist... allows me to be lazy...and still get stuff I want
When I first got this entertainment center... it was wood.. and honestly nothing wrong with it. But I didn't like the color of it. So ... of course... I painted it white.
Did I mention this thing was 10 feet long...which almost fit that nook perfectly in my living room? I a telling you... this was meant to be.
It had glass shelving in it... which was a little dated so I replaced those with wood shelves... which helped a lot.
I am really in love with this center now... I do need a bigger tv. Once I get a bigger tv it will look more proportioned... but that will probably have to wait a few months....
Here is the closest thing I have to a before picture.... I had already started painting and realized... Oh shoot... I need a before shot! :) (don't mind all that mess... )
And here is the after...
I think once we get a larger tv and hang it in the middle of that space on the wall. the whole thing will look a lot better!
What do you think?
Have you found any amazing deals on Craigslist?
Or do you actually wake up early enough to get the good garage sale finds?
