a farmhouse t.v. armoire

Look what hubby made me.....

We were wanting something a little more "our" style to house our flat screen t.v. and seems how most all tv cabinets you find for flat screen tv's are kinda modern looking....we knew it would have to be something custom made. I drew up what I had in mind (we were thinking we wanted it to look farmhousey and kinda like a large crate) it's pefectly sized at only 13" deep and 7 feet wide.

After only a couple hours.....this is what I had....I adore it! He did an awesome job. The materials cost around $70.00 and I already had the white and aqua paint....as for the accessories.....I had all that already too....except those beautiful green jars...I bought those from Maria's gorgeous shop Dreamy Whites....I was inspired by Maria to add little pops of color to an all white decor....and her jars did the job perfectly.

See the tole lamps on top of the cabinet....I l.o.v.e. those and have had them for a long time.... those babies will be with me always.


Happy Monday Girls!

  15. Your husband did a wonderful job! It looks perfect in your home! I like the tole lamps and the clock...and of course the pretty jars from Maria's shop {I stop in to look for new things at least once a week!}.

    At our lakehouse we use a real crate as a TV stand! lol! It came with the house and it's perfect. The previous owner made it and we love it!

    Have a great week!

  25. Love the cabinet! And you're right, most prefab cabinets look fairly modern. Yours is a perfect fit for your style décor.

    I just found you and joined you as a follower. I look forward to getting to know you. ;)

  32. Love it Andrea! I'm not sure which is more amazing...that it turned out so well or that your husband just did it (mine would have to be "encouraged" for a long time, I fear).

  38. Just stunning, Andrea! You guys are a great team. ♥ I'd love to know about the inside. Is the TV on a shelf with room under for the Wii (ugh!) and such? Do the doors slide or open like cabinet doors? Ü
