“TV is chewing gum for the eyes.” -Frank Lloyd Wright

Landon's Christmas bonus was a 42" HDTV that arrived last week. Well since it would never fit in the armoire our old TV is in, it ended up in our bedroom on top of the dresser. I swore to myself that I would NEVER have a TV in my bedroom. And now I know why. It's SO tempting to sit in bed and watch an episode of Prison Break or a movie, especially because along with the TV came Apple TV and Netflix. I hardly ever watched TV until last week when it showed up on our doorstep. Now I might have to agree with Ray Bradbury, "The television, that insidious beast, that Medusa which freezes a billion people to stone every night, staring fixedly, that Siren which called and sang and promised so much and gave, after all, so little." Ok so maybe thats a little over the top, but there is some truth in his words. But man do I love me a good chick flick with the click of a button ;). So on with the point of this post...
Now that we have a new TV that I've sworn won't be staying in our bedroom and is too big for our armoire, I've been searching for the perfect affordable media console for our living room. Here were my choices, yesterday I finally made up my mind and ordered the last one from Home Decorators Collection. What do you think!? Did I make the right choice? I love that it is white and has doors to cover up all of the "stuff" that goes along with a TV. The other two only have one or the other.
