When I posted my Bedroom Built-in Armoires, I learned from some of the pros that I had saved several thousand dollars by building them myself. Since we often see very large-screen TVs in beautiful entertainment centers on here (or even installed in the footboard of a bed), we wanted to keep up with the Joneses. So, instead of investing the savings in tools, we decided to upgrade to a 58” plasma TV in the bedroom.
It fits the cabinet perfectly! It works out really well since the bedroom is small and we have to watch TV lying in bed. As I lay on my side, the picture is perfect. The only problem is that, being old and somewhat arthritic, I can’t lay on one side for very long, so my husband has to flip the TV the other direction every half hour so I don’t have to watch an upside-down picture.
[Truthfully, we haven’t watched TV since the country went digital and we couldn’t get a signal on a converter box without installing a huge antenna or paying for satellite. We decided we’d rather just go without one since there was never anything we enjoyed watching anyway. It gives us far more time in the shop.]
We just thought everyone needs to laugh once in a while!
