A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Budget Electronic Decor...

I realize I still have a kitchen reveal to show you... soon!
In the meantime - the room next door (we call it the Family Room)
 has been seeing changes too.   For starters, we did not have a good place 
for our electronics.  So we made a purchase from a local
(Bonus:  the drawer handles match our kitchen hardware!)
Our TV works great - as does the rest of our sound system.  
And since we don't have cable or watch much TV
(give me a good clean movie any day!) - our budget-
friendly solution was to just keep what we had - speakers and all.
  (Am I the only blogger alive without a flat screen?) 

 To give the corner a little charm - I did a little snipping in my flower beds...

...and plopped them right on top of said speakers.  
(Yes - that's a doily on there.)

I also revised a grapevine wreath with a few faux greenery sprigs...

And our electronic corner now has a bit of cottage charm.

I'm loving my white achillea and hope it will dry and stay a bit white.  
We'll see...

Keeping up with the Jones' is not always budget friendly.  
If it ain't broke - you don't have to fix it!
Do what works for you and your lifestyle. 

Can't wait to watch My Fair Lady in this room. 
Just picked up the video (yes video) for 25 cents!
(And no wonder since nobody has a VHS player anymore.  Oh yeah - we do!) 
Come on weekend!  ~Joyce

Well, we do have a flat screen but that's just because our other TV died and was going to cost more to fix than a new TV. I also have doilies. I have lots of them since I make them. :-). My kids say they're out of style but I don't care. Love your entertainment corner. The new stand for everything works perfectly doesn't it?

Joyce, just got to tell you that your electronics look identical to ours! Our TV is a Sony that belonged to my Mother and it has the BIG back that sticks way out. All of our electronics are still in one of those big cabinets, along with my husband's stereo and big speakers from the 1970's. I have a TV in the sewing room that plays VCR's and I love the old, decent movies. I love the vase of flowers on the speaker! Looks perfect to me.
