Progress thus far......

Seriously have you ever tried to create a fun, funky, vintage flair space around a 47 inch man size flat screen TV? Well here is my attempt! I bought this vintage buffet from Jo, sanded and painted black. Yes .. I did paint OAK! Welcome to my work in progress! (click images for larger view) (please note that is baseball on the big screen.. are you surprised?)

NOW.. I NEED YOUR THOUGHTS!! What to put if anything on the left side of the TV? I am thinking of making this whole back wall filled with family pictures, mirrors. What else could I put! I am searching for a warm look like the corner wall?

Looking for all your suggestions and comments... Have a blessed Sunday!

OMGosh! You did a fabulous job!!! It doesn't even look like the same piece of furniture. You are so inspiring. :-)

GREAT JOB!
Love how it turned out. You must of had a vision becuase I couldn't see what you saw.
Nicely done. In fact, your whole room looks great!
Can you come over and bring your creative vision?

Great job on the piece of furniture. I'm a bit unsure, though, about peppering the wall with too much. I think it may be too distracting when watching the TV if there is too much "stuff" all around it. (You know sometimes there might be something on there YOU want to watch and you don't want to be distracted....right?) I'd try to put a couple of hanging green plants there as I'd find that warm AND soothing at the same time...but that's just me! (Bet you are sorry you asked for suggestions and comments now,huh? LOL)

Valarie- I received my giveaway. I love it! The apron is so soft it immediately reminded me of my grandmother.

I gave you a shout out on a post that will be up in about an hour.

Thanks again,
Laura

Your T.V stand turned out GREAT! It fits so nicely in your room. I think you are on the right track, I would add more family photos, as to mirror the right side of the T.V.wall.
You have done a fabulous job decorating your room.
Take care and enjoy your day,
Elizabeth
