Well the room is painted, even touched up, and the rug is mostly torn out. Mac threw it out the window and loaded it into the car where it is awaiting a trip to the dumps. As we were maneuvering the huge entertainment center around we discovered that the bottom of one side was simply sawdust. So though it's paid for, and that's my favorite furniture design, it now looks like we're going to have to buy a new entertainment center. Right now the one we have is about 7 feet long and 6 feet high, with the tv in the center and bookshelves going down each side, or at least it looked like that before Mac began dismantling it.
After looking at about a million of these media centers (I hate that name) online, we've decided that we'd rather have a smaller one that had a little more style to it, and if we have to put a few more books in the closet we will. So I guess that we're off furniture shopping today.
The picture is of one we're considering from Rooms to Go. We've bought from them before and like their furniture. We don't have a flat screen tv and refuse to buy one until our present one dies, which it shows no sign of doing. So we'll have a new media center (ugh) and a really old tv, how divine.
