When we first started looking for a large TV, we both agreed that a 37″ would be the best for our living room, since the couch is pretty close to the entertainment center. We found a great deal, so Hunky J lovingly took it upon himself to pick it up from the store. I was super excited when I saw the box in the back of the car! But upon closer inspection, I realized that there must have been a mixup at the store…it was a 42″ TV!
OK, I knew there wasn’t a mixup. HJ just couldn’t help himself when he saw that we could get a bigger TV for less money than the 37″. I couldn’t be mad, he was scoring us a sweet deal! (Since then, I must admit, I could have even gone for a bigger screen)
Anyway, the problem that ensued was having a TV that suddenly became the focal point 😦
I don’t even have any before photos, because it looked so cumbersome.
Our solution was to hang a shelf above the TV, but low, so that it looked like a whole entertainment center, instead of a GIANT TV. Take a look at these:
So here is a quick Photoshopped of ours Before:
