This new living room set up was a long time coming. I had not moved much the living room furniture since we purchased out home. Of course the accessories, knick knacks, and pictures were on a constant rotation. But, the staples of the room had stayed the same. Not for lack of wanting, or even trying. Lack of options. There is not one wall in this room that does not have a window, fireplace, walks ways, or entry in it. Not one!
Oh look, zoom out of the fireplace mantel shot and I have a Gavin setting his car up to do it’s own zooming. He makes a few appearances in this journey of ours.
I will admit that our TV on top of the book shelf makes me cringe. It is not the best look, but very functional. We are not big TV watchers, but we are not ready to go TV less in our living room. The plan is to make some built ins on either side of the fireplace and hide the TV in there. Once we figure out how to add more hours in the day, we are so ready to do those built ins.
