A new addition


In keeping with my new year's resolution of making my house more comfortable, I'd like to introduce the newest addition to our living room - the TV cabinet. It replaces an old rickety cabinet that was twice the size and nearly falling down. The new cabinet was a bit of a bargain that I snapped up, and I think it's going to take some getting used to, but it does look much tidier than the old one. Not sure about the dark colour, but I'll live with it for a while and see. I could always paint it. And, I definitely need some prints or paintings behind it. All in all though, it will be great to have a cabinet that we can open without fear of it falling down!
In other news, I am very happy to report that I downloaded the first episode of the second season of Extras - currently offered for free on i tunes! Hurrah! I love Extras, and pretty much everything that Ricky Gervais does, although I'm not sure about those Flanimal things. It's great that the episodes will be available on i tunes, because we don't have HBO here in Nova Scotia. Anyhow, if you haven't seen any of Ricky Gervais' work, I would recommend that you check out the Office, or the podcasts, or Extras, which I am about to do right now!

The cabinet was a lovely choice I think. Nice clean lines and yes, you can always paint it at some point in the future. Very important that it be sturdy!

OH-MI, OH-MI, OH-MI Thank you for the announcement about Extras, I am downloading it right now (I should be working). I like the cabinet, is it dark brown or black? As long as it is not a danger to life + limb...We have a gargantuan armor that we are dying to get rid of, it's only purpose, at the moment, is to house our 13" TV.

It's actually really dark brown - almost black. It sounds weird, but it looks much darker here at home than it did in the shop. I guess that's always the way.
