Ever since we moved into our house last April, our TV has been sitting on an old desk. Total buzz kill.
Chris and I had talked about whether or not we wanted to invest thousands of dollars getting a built in entertainment center, buy a superrrr nice entertainment center, or chancing an IKEA entertainment center.
At the end of the day we realized we may have a few more years in this house until we move closer to Chris's work, and probably upsize because I will be dying for babies at that point. Real-talk. We thought that sinking thousands into an entertainment center that a) we might not be able to take with us if we got it built in, or b) might not have a spot at our future home, was not a good investment.
Enter in this three piece entertainment center from the one and only, IKEA! Chris is soooo skeptical of IKEA. He thinks it is cheap and doesn't want our home to look "collegish." After much (much) convincing, I got him on board!
We are absolutely thrilled with how it turned out!
I haven't quite gotten around to filling in all the frames...but congrats to that couple who, "together, has it all!"
We love that the three pieces are separate, so if there isn't room or a need for this entertainment center in our next house, we can split up the pieces and use them in different places throughout the house.
We went with a combination from the Hemnes family at IKEA. Since the pieces come separately you can sort-of custom make how you want it to look.
Have you done any updates to your home lately? Do you have an entertainment center from IKEA? I would love to hear how it holds up throughout the years!
