Like many red-blooded American males, my husband purchased the largest flat screen HDTV we could afford the week before Super Bowl XLIII (“43” for the Roman numerically challenged).  OK.  So I’m down.  I love football as much as any other red-blooded American wife, and I’ll admit I reveled in the OOOHs and AAAHs received from family and friends at our yearly Super Bowl party.  But it’s wreaking havoc on my already minimal decorating skills.

Our old TV lived in a giant green armoire, which I affectionately referred to as “that green piece of crap.” With the flat screen mounted directly to the wall, it was time to retire the green beast.  For the past month we’ve utilized a fold-up card table, adorned with a Christmas tablecloth, to hold our cable box and the plethora of Wii games that we possess.  All the while I’ve been frantically searching every furniture store within a 50 mile radius for anything suitable, affordable and not green to replace the armoire.



On our recent journey to Durango, Colorado, we found this refurbished antique Chinese Elm credenza in a little store called There’s No Place Like Home (gotta love that name). It was the perfect size to fit both in the back of our car to travel back to Denver, and under the new TV. It holds all of our cables and TV junk and I can still close its doors…Yay! Sometimes the best things are found in the most unlikely of places.
