LastMinuteLucie and the search for time

10 days into my time off and I have refreshed my front room with paint, rearranged the furniture so it’s much more attractive and useable and spent as little as possible on a new carpet  – the aim was to have carpet without holes, but not so costly I was too precious to let my girls in ever again!

The final touch was to FINALLY organise a TV cabinet for the alcove / corner / window. It’s such an awkward space we’ve never been able to go down the ready to wear route and, as you can see, it was a mess of wires and a waste of a perfectly good husband made coffee table. Also, ancient cat kept pooping behind it – not good.

So bespoke was the only way, but my budget was tight. I popped into a few second hand stores and found this mahogany coloured beauty for £20 (reduced from £25!)

With a few coats of the same paint as I used for the walls, new handles and half a sheet of MDF cut to shape and painted in the same way, I have a bespoke TV cabinet that holds the TV, the video/DVD machine, the cable TV doobrie, all the Wii remotes and games and all the DVDs for less than £50. My husband thinks it was a great idea of his.

I’m pretty chuffed with it too!
