Also from Ikea, the LIATORP sideboard comes in the white (which would match trim) or a dark brown color that looks nice as well. The info online says it is compatible as a media unit and apparently has electrical plugs in back. But is it a bit too country?? And could I live with such open storage???
This PLANTATION tv stand is from Pier 1. The doors slide, so essentially I could slide them both to the middle when not in use, and use the sides for decorative items, which I love! However, it's pricier, and looks pretty red, I'd have to see in person.
A Mid-Century piece I spotted on Ebay, this is perfect!! I'd probably throw on some sleek hardware and call it a day! However, it's more expensive, and buying online, I could never be 100% sure, the proportions would work, and it could properly be retro-fitted..... SHOOT!!
Anyhow, you can kind of see the space of the new house above in the crappy photo of the unfinished fireplace area. What do you think would work?? What pieces do YOU love??? What do you hate?? Do you know of something else that I'd like?? SEND ME YOUR COMMENTS !!!!!

They managed to pour the concrete in our garage
And also, in the basement... while this doesn't look like much, eventually it will hold a half bath, and a beautiful laundry room!
This is the view we'll have from our dining and living room windows, to the backyard. It'll be awesome sitting out on the large deck in the summer! We're so amazed at how awesome the yard will be with the walk-out basement!
Cory's standing right where my sofa is gonna go, in the living room. I'm also thinking beautiful dark wood blinds, flanked by beautiful drapes I will make!
One big project that I have already commission is the fireplace mantel! As you can see so far, there's not much special going on with the fireplace. Aside for a tile surround, their option was a shitty little "shelf" that can more accurately be described as a picture ledge. So, I opted to go without, and found one much more to my liking. In fact, I saw a picture of it in a magazine, and sent it off to my favorite contractor - MY MOM!!! She's already purchased some of the materials, but needs to come in and get some measurements. It probably won't be ready before we move in, but it is something I really looking forward to!!!
Anyhow, there's lots more, but I will leave you with that!
Have a great one!
