This is our living room tv niche/fireplace before our radical new Sharp 60" HDTV went in. I told myself that we wouldn't be those people buying a tv before the Super Bowl... but we were. Eddie emailed me in a fit of excitement that the same TV his friend bought was on sale again. I'm not about to get in between a man and his TV. So we got one. Right before the Super Bowl.
I'm not gonna lie, I LOVE it!!
We're also having a custom built in made by Bob @ homewoodwork.com for the TV with some cabinets below and a shelf above. Since we bought the house, I've been pining for a built in and I'm finally getting one!
Bob was great when he came out to measure our space. Woodworking is a twilight career of sorts for him. He learned the trade when he was a young boy and after working in the corporate world, he revisited his early love-- woodworking.
Hennyways, it should be installed in May, I think. Bob's a busy guy and does all of the woodworking at his home. I just know it's gonna look great =)
