Since the before post, we had the fireplace installed and the drywall hung, taped, and plastered. We (I) did the priming and painting ourselves to save a little bit of money. Somehow the room grew in size even though we bumped out 21″ from the wall. I guess that's what happens when you draw the eye up and wide. Let's talk about storage for a second. Because we have a tiny 3-yr-old that has toys spilling out her nose. Someone asked why we went for non-functioning wood as opposed to cabinets below the benches. It's a really good question. This may sound crazy, but I didn't want to add anymore storage. Because when you have more storage, you fill it. And just a couple steps away, we have plenty of storage for her toys in the dining room (reveal coming soon). A couple steps more, and she can get to the rest in the office. There's one hidden spot of toys in the living room though. Underneath that side table is a basket of legos. That's it.
We keep a stack of magazines (fun for me). And I just procured those tic-tac-toe pieces from Target (for us). The “game board” it came with was an afterthought, so I ditched it and made my own game board with black washi tape. More often than not, that coffee table is Hal's craft table too despite having a craft table just her size. It endures a lot. bout that TV. We chose to keep in on the ledge and off to the side (not mounted permanently above the fireplace). It's hard to hide a TV in a minimally designed room but it took our out-of-town friend a couple hours to figure out where the TV was. I'll mark that as a success. Our contractor drilled a hole in the back corner of the bench and covered it with a plastic cord cap. We feed the cords through the hole to the preexisting outlets beneath both sides of the benches. The outlets are covered by the wood, so we look cordless!
