Here is a picture of the the TV stand that almost got the best of me -- excuse the glare on the TV.
I love the industrial look of this piece but I have never, ever, ever had as much trouble putting together a piece of DIY furniture as I had with this.... and I have put together a LOT of DIY stuff. I got it at Walmart- it is BHG furniture from Sauder. You can see it here. Now I'm not saying you shouldn't buy this but if you do here are a few hints. First it will take more than a screwdriver to put it together. I have a drill driver and it needed an assembler with muscles (aka my oldest son). Second, you are probably going to have to go to the hardware store and buy some more screws. Take one from the package with you. I ended up stripping the heads on some screws and the threads on other screws and I was just using a screwdriver and my wimpy 60 year old muscles. Third, pay very close attention to the instructions. They are not easy to follow. That wasn't just my opinion, it is also the opinion of my son who is way more adept at this than I am. I admit I am not a spatial thinker, but he is. He could have been an engineer but chose to go to law school instead, so he's no dummy. All in all, next time I would buy something from IKEA (you know I LOVE LOVE LOVE IKEA) or a piece from Closetmaid.
Here is my view of this sitting area from my sewing machine.
It is a cozy little area, to watch TV or sit and stitch. As you can see Big Dude finds it comfy too!
