A New Armoire

Almost two years ago King and I got new living room furniture and a new TV.  I automatically assumed that I wanted one of those low TV stands because they seemed to be all the rage. . . . um yeah, looking back on that decision makes me want to punch myself in the face.  I HATE it!  I totally regretted selling my not so snazzy armoire for a tiny $50.  Finally, I was able to pinch some pennies and get a new one! Whoop! (Blesses that I was able to get the TV stand off my hands for a reasonable price.)

I decided to go with the cardboard boxes to hold all of the DVDs.  Why cardboard? Because knowing King, he will probably bang it against the wood and dent it whenever he needs a DVD- so nothing plastic or hard.  My OCD disorder cannot handle dents & dings in the wood.  I originally planned on purchasing a fabric bin/basket, but I couldn’t resist the price of these boxes.  Scrapbooking paper made them a little more snazzy and then I got lazy .  . . I wanted to add something else .  . . But their behind closed doors so I didn’t.  All nice, neat and tidy- Just like I like it.
