Six months later, we finally decided on an entertainment center for our living room. I saw a picture of the Hemnes series on Pinterest, but since Ikea was 4 hours away, I knew it would a pain to get. So, I searched every furniture store in town to try and find one I liked better. My mind kept going back to that white beauty though.
Thankfully, I have a fabulous brother-in-law who was willing to bring the boxes up for us. So, after two trips, it was mine! To keep our sanity, we put the pieces together over a course of 4 days. It was definitely a process and we were very glad when it was over.
As a reminder, here's what it looked like before. Blech! (Sorry for the crappy quality iPhone picture)
And here's what it looks like now! It looks a million times better than what we had before. It's taller, wider, and fits like a glove between our windows. For such a big living room, it's nice to have a focal point.
Now I get to do the fun part of accessorizing! I absolutely LOVE it!
