Pillow Cover Girl

Pillow Cover Girl
The problem with flat-screen TVs is nothing.  Flat screen TVs are SOO much better than the TVs of yore.  But they do come with a few challenges.  Like, for one, putting a flat screen inside an entertainment center typically meant for a chubby chunk of a TV looks kind of silly.  But so does sticking a regular dresser in the living room and pretending it’s an ‘entertainment console.’
Better After reader Jenny came up with a solution to de-dresser-ify this Salvation Army find and make it work for her TV.  First she created open shelving for all their gaming systems by removing the top drawers (which were broken anyway), and moved the extra knobs below.  For an extra punch of awesome, she used a living room pillow as inspiration to paint the drawer fronts. I’d say she nailed it! Thanks Jenny!

    That looks great! I’ve seen this idea on Pinterest a few times and have talked hubby into doing this to an old dresser that we have that has seen better days. All I need to do is decide what color to paint it.

    Anonymous, I agree. I wanted to take it out but it has a 54″ plasma TV sitting on top of it!! lol. Wasn’t sure I wanted to risk messing up the structural integrity. Aesthetically though, I’m totally with you!
