The living area has been undergoing radical changes. As I mentioned earlier we got rid of the pre-furnished house rug, got rid of Tod's ugly old desk and the bland coffee table. We never had a real tv stand so I've set out to make a coffee table and a tv stand to go with our other growing collection of found object furniture, clocks, and art. When I put the tv in the corner I never dealt with hiding the cords, next to the tv is the hideous component stand that has filled up the wall outlet so the tv plug had to go on the other wall.
We are quite pleased with this look. There is something toxic and industrial, not to mention ridiculous about this big tube thing looking like it blasts into the small speaker. I'm sure it will influence whatever it is I end up creating for the tv stand. It never ceases to amaze me what I find on my hikes in the woods. Just the other day I found a 5" long piece of gray/red metal hanging on a bush. Also found an old horse plow that is trapped for life since a tree is growing in the middle of it.
