When you give a girl an idea …

We all know what happens when you give a mouse a cookie.  But what happens when you get a great deal on a flat screen TV?  You bring it home and mount it over the fireplace, of course.  Then you have to redo the fireplace, since it is the focal point after all.  But why stop at the fireplace, when you could also add  a  built-in bookshelf like you’ve always wanted?  Better paint the room while you’re at it.  Ugh, now the old couch doesn’t match. Obviously you need a new one.  You know what else would be nice?  Installing some spotlights!  Whew!  That only took five months, a lot of sweat, and a hefty chunk of change.  But man, that TV was such a great deal.
From Elaine at My Not So Rose-Colored Life, great job!

  7. Wow! What a transformation! I love the orange dresser turned sideboard!

  8. That transformation is 10-fold! It went from a dowdy basement looking room to a room contemporary style. Well done!

  9. Thank you for the kind comments! I forgot to link this over to my blog – http://www.mynotsorosecoloredlife.blogspot.com/

  10. Nice to see what a “real” house looks like with an over-the-fireplace TV! Fantastic! All the ones in the Better Homes & Gardens website didn’t seem too practical but this looks really nice.
