I came home on Friday to a lovely used media console that Corey found at our favorite Goodwill sitting on the porch. Our current console is falling apart, so it was a nice surprise. We are in the midst of painting and changing out hardware and I will hopefully be able to share it with you next week, but in the mean time I have started thinking about how I am going to decorate around the new piece. Typically the most attractive option for decorating (read: hiding) around the TV is to do a gallery wall as is evidenced in my collage, but the wall that the console will be on is actually right next to our french gallery wall, so I think it would be a bit too much. Instead, I think I am going to choose several larger scale art pieces on the wall, decorate with some knick knacks on the console and maybe a pretty lamp.
Speaking of gallery walls, if you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I started hanging the one in my office/living room. I’m still waiting on a couple of pieces, but it already makes that room feel so much more together. Maybe I will actually start to do work in there.
