So, it means we can do some re-configuring of our media set-up in the living room. We will need a new TV stand (!! I hate the old one and I'm going to use my danceteam judging money to purchase the console) and we'll have to move the leaning bookshelf and stereo somewhere else in the house. I'm hoping that we end up with some kind of speakers in the mix too, but we might have to troll craigslist for those later.
Here are a couple of options that we are considering.
Red glossy wide console & upper wall shelf unit from Ikea, formally named: BESTÅ BURS for $349.
Can also be purchased minus the wall shelf for $249, but I think it would look more cohesive and purposeful with. If we went with this one, we would paint the wall behind it white and change some of our accessories for a red, aqua/Tiffany blue, tan, white scheme. Ala this, this and this feel.
I also like this option from Target for $179.99.
Less money and no painting required. But we'd miss out on the chance to update the room.
