Beadboard ala Blogland

I find one BIG problem with blogging. There are so many wonderful & creative ideas out there, it's hard not to copy all of them.

This idea, however, is one I've wanted to copy for some time....my family room entertainment center. It always gives me stress.

1. I think it's just enormous.
2. I am constantly struggling to prettily arrange the shelves.
3. I don't completely hate the piece, so I keep it around. Crazy?

I always thought the dull wood background was a huge source of my struggle. Nothing ever shows up against it.

Enter blogland. Enter beadboard. Enter the idea that has been done thousands of times.

My hubby assisted with this project & honestly, he was shaking his head & rolling his eyes the entire time.

Once it was completed, what did my wondering ears hear? He actually said, "I like it. It looks better." Hmmmm.





Score one for blogland!
