The first change I knew we wanted to make was to create a more substantially sized area for our big screen television. We bought a new big TV last spring when our other tv one quit working properly, but we never had the right sized piece of furniture to put it on. The large tv completely dwarfed the entertainment stand that it sat on. It looked so out of proportion. Thankfully, I am married to a super hero. My super hero husband was able to see my vision for the area and was able to create a lovely fireplace that now looks proportionate to the big TV.
This corner area was created with old barn wood that has family history. The wood came from an old barn that stood on our property when I was a child. The fireplace area was created with airstone. We are now in love with airstone. It is very easy to work with and much less expensive that buying real stone. The finished project turned out just like I envisioned.
We still have lots of little updates in our home to work on, but I am jumping for joy over our start.
a cabinet update!
I'll keep ya posted.
