My French Country Entertainment Piece!

I thought I had my formal living room looking pretty good, and I even shared my summer fireplace décor with you here. Until...My hubby walked in the other day and informed me that he had a great idea.  He wanted to move our flat screen from over the fireplace to our family room! I have wanted to do this for a while, just for the pure joy of getting my mantle back! I love decorating my fireplace area during the holidays and different seasons, but the flat screen took up so much of the mantel that it made decorating very tricky. Here is a picture of when we had the flat screen over the mantel..

So this change brought on by the hubby put me on a furniture hunt at my local thrift store! I knew the minute I walked in and saw this French country beauty that she was mine! I was in love with her immediately!

I know this could easily be used for a side buffet, but I will use this French country stand for an entertainment piece for my family room. 

 I love to take furniture pieces and change them up for another use! I accomplished that with this piece...You don't have to spend a ton of money on brand new furniture when you are in need of a piece to use in your home. I strongly feel that sometimes you just need a little junk in your home to make it cozy!

 The old saying " one man's junk is another man's treasure" is so true!  I have added this "junk" piece to my collection of favorites!

Now to fix the big open space where the flat screen use to reside! I will share that change with you soon!

    1. Thank you! Don't you just love all the storage space you get with that? I have room for all the games and controllers and dvds with this new piece!

  2. Love it, Nicole! It's a perfect use for that can hide everything tv- related inside. I got a pine server for $75 at the thrift store and it is one of my prized pieces, so I totally get your thrill! :)
