Always on the lookout for ideas for around the house.

Dh has been saying he would like to change the TV stand now that we have a flat screen TV.  So of course I have been searching high and low for the "prefect"  LCD TV Stand and I think I have finally found it.  What do you think about this one.  Our furniture in the family room is burgundy and green, we have wood floors and panelling on the walls, so I thought the antique white/cream would add a bit of brightness to the room?  I also like that it isn't too modern looking and it has plenty of storage in it.  Plus I want to eventually paint the walls an antique white colour to add an air of lightness to the room?

I have to admit my mind is all over the place with decorating this house as there is so much to do, and only so much money in the pot, but I guess that is the same with everyone isn't it?  So I need to shop around even more to see how far I can stretch what little money we have.  One thing in our favour though is the American dollar is on par with the Canadian dollar which makes buying across the border even more attractive at the moment!!

Dd went to a store called Creative Bag on Thursday and they have a fantastic website full of fun things, check it out.

I love it. It's a great contrast to the "modern" looking flat screen so that the complete unit will go with your house.

What a great find.

I think that stand is lovely! The store does have a veyr fun site as well, we have a store like that in Montreal called Essence du Papier, but their site isn't nearly as handy, which I have always found to be a shame.

I really, really like that stand. I would buy it in a flash. TV's can be very masculine looking, but with this stand underneath, it goes back the other way a little. Get it quick, before you change your mind.
ps I've noticed you are nesting at the moment! Very sweet.
