I brought a shelf in from the living room over the weekend, slapped a curtain up on it, some candles, and the Buddha statue that had been living in one of my gardens in the backyard (I'd taken the garden down a few weeks ago to re-do it):
Media storage is a BIG issue in the living room - there's lots of furniture in there, but only so much hidden storage for all the CDs, DVDs, and yes, even old VHS tapes. I could never figure out what to do with all the tapes - they're so big, the cases were all ratty with age and use, we hardly ever watch them (but are keeping them around until we replace them with DVDs), and I couldn't ever figure out what to do with them in there. So they're on this shelf, under the curtain! Secret storage, tee-hee!
I have more updates for you this week, since I finally got around to taking some serious photographs over the weekend. I'll show you more of the bedroom, my master bathroom, the little things I've been doing in the living room since I painted it last month, the new dining room table, and a bit about that china cabinet I talked about last week, as well.
