BIG Do-Over Project & BIG Win from Jackie's Journey

You know how everyone is wondering what to do with their old entertainment centers being replaced by new HDTV's hanging on the walls or over the fireplaces? Well, mine is safe and secure and will not be gong anywhere. That sweet talented hubby of mine made it for us, so of course it's not going anywhere. I cherish everything he makes us for our home. Most of the pieces of furniture that he's made, he actually cut the tree, drove it to the sawmill, planed the wood himself, then began the project. Honest!
Anyway, here are the pictures showing you how I changed it a little. I didn't realize the back wall of the TV shelf had so many holes in it.

I knew that needed covering, so I explained to Wayne what I wanted. I chose the paint color for the wainscoting and he cut it.
I painted it, then he glued it in tonight. It looks GREAT.

The old entertainment center is now on a side wall and neatly holds a lot of stuff. I hope you like it too.

Oh, how excited I was when I went over to Jackie's Journey and seen that I won her giveaway. I won a beautiful collection of items: A book about antiques, a birdhouse for spring, a beautiful bird candle holder and a lovely handkerchief. Oh, I just can't wait to see it all when it gets here.
Jackie is such a sweetie, I really hope you'll go over and visit her blog. You'll enjoy it. Although her and I live many many miles apart in Florida, we've been suffering through this COLD weather together and keeping each other smiling through our frostbite.

TGIF - Can you believe half of January is gone? This is getting scary, time is disappearing while I'm sleeping, blinking, cleaning the house, or something. Where does it go? Anyway, I hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend. We're supposed to get some rain here in Florida and that'll give us warmer temperatures.

    I've been looking around your blog and love it! The entertainment center re-do turned out really well. I love the paint color, too.

    We just got back from Florida. Thankfully, all your cold weather was pretty much done before we got there. We really enjoyed the break from our snow and cold.
