my befores and afters


i don't know if i like these two rooms yet, i'm still trying to figure out what i like and don't like!



okay so here's some more paint jobs that the prior owner thought would be such a great idea. hmmm, must of been on some pretty good drugs to make this look good! but here's my dilemma, i hate hate hate my tv where it is, and i hate hate hate ever seeing a tv in a room, but i dont' watch tv till after 10pm and that's when i'm in my room, any suggestions as to how to hide it? i know an armior (sp?) would be the best choice but, the whole money thing....do i just deal with it? it's really ugly! i'll take more pics of my bedroom i just can't seem to upload more than 4 at a time! and that's still painfully slow!

The previous owners weren't circus people, were they? That would explain a lot.

I have seen people put them up in the corner (with the appropriate mounting). It's still visible, but off of the dresser. Other than that I don't know how to hide it, without an enclosure like an armoire.

To hide your television, what about tri fold wooden blinds- something like this? http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/productImage/c80857ca-3c88-43b3-9df7-f68bb8586151_400.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/thdsitemap_product_100017743_10053_10051&h=400&w=400&sz=12&hl=en&start=18&sig2=Zu3c9dfrWFfJq2i8Sw6zMw&um=1&tbnid=Q5NkMzDnEZcH0M:&tbnh=124&tbnw=124&ei=ANTZR76ZHZKYoQSgldXPCg&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dplantation%2Bshutters%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DG
You could move it when you wanted to watch tv? Sometimes I see these at our local Habitat Re-Store shop. Just an idea, not real practical probably though.

haha! circus people! that's funny!
yeah i know the armoire would be my best bet, now if i could just get one from gardners village country funiture with drawers under it for our clothes...oh to dream...

i do like the idea of trying to hide it, trust me i've thought about it almost every time i'm in the room, but i think what i'm going to end up doing is just slowly putting money aside to get what i want and that's an armoire i looked up that link jada 2929 thank you for it, that's an option too! don't know how to keep them up though? hmmm...

Try a hotel (my guess is that there aren't any close by) somewhere. Sometimes they remodel and get rid of old furniture. Maybe you could call them first and see if it's even a possibility.

My thoughts on the room and house colors...maybe they were color blind!

Circus people! To funny! Hey V, some people have or put in shelves in their closet for a tv. I don't know what you have, just an idea.
