Thought I'd share a peek at the rest of the entertainment center today.
I'm happy to say that the decorating continues to be with "stuff" found around the house...with just one or two "new" purchases.
|The quilted angel and the star have been a part of my family room decor for many years, and the book comes from my "old book" collection. Lady Liberty is a "new" purchase. She cost $1.21 at my favorite thrift store.|
|This pitcher was also painted by the same artist as the box above. The sweet stitchery was a gift from my friend Patricia.|
|More books that belongs to Bill's mom...the bowl and the horse have decorated the family room for many years. But not as many as that pillow! Mandy sttiched it many years ago. I think it was her second sewing project.|
|I recently purchased this planter and turned it into a Christmas DVD holder....perfect!|
Here we have the bridge that joins the two side towers...yay!
Three more cubbies to decorate!!
|More RDCB...love the colors of these three. The clock has been keeping time in the family room forever, and the bobbins and lace came from my craft room.|
|A pretty plate and a bottle recently purchased at Homegoods...under $8.00 total purchase!|
|More decorating with movies...this time MASH and The Hunger Games DVDs. The cute owl was a thrift store find. The pitcher came from Michael's...No. 4 represents my four grandbabies. I'm going to have to change that to five this summer.|
Of course I couldn't just put a TV on the media cabinet...so I added some "touchable" decor. My grandchildren play down here, and it's important to me to have things for them to play with.
|A wooden bowl filled with letter blocks....perfect for spelling words, and stacking up as towers.|
|Dominos in a bowl....line them up and knock them down. That's a fun way to play with them.|
I love our new entertainment center....it's functional
(the drawers hold DVDs) and fun (15 cubbies!!).
The two wooden bowls look kind of skimpy as far as toys go.....maybe tomorrow I'll share the other playthings in my family room.
