This week’s home improvement update wasn’t built from scratch for once. Instead, we took something we already had, and made it better!
When Matthew and I moved into our apartment, the only furniture we had were items that we brought from our parents’ houses. We had a bed, dressers, couches, etc. However, we did not have an entertainment center.
We were penny-pinching because we wanted to buy a house asap, so we decided to use what we already had as a temporary entertainment center.
I wasn’t a fan. But it worked so we kept it. It was awkwardly large and I was just dreaming of the day we’d have a regular sized entertainment center.
When we moved into our house, I immediately began many internet searches trying to find an entertainment center that I liked. Nothing really spoke to me. I didn’t like what I was seeing.
Then I had a wonderful idea, what if we just made our current entertainment center shorter?
So that’s what Matthew did! He took out a shelf and made the whole thing smaller. It makes the room feel so much bigger and I’m obsessed with the outcome! I love the wood, the color, the details, the squares, and the shelves. This is the entertainment center I always wanted and it was sitting in front of me the whole time! And was free!!
Just shows that a little DIY can truly go a long way.
