This is a photo of the shelves and Tv set up in the living room (this photo is a little crooked but you get the idea). Am I happy with the arrangment? Not quite! I love having the Tv downstairs and I love the credenza but I don't love the shelves. I thought that we should have some shelves over the Tv for the CD player and also to stack some books. Unfortunately the books on the shelf looked too cluttered. So then I put some plants on the shelves and I am still not quite satisfied with the shelves. I don't know what I was thinking putting up shelves on this wall!
I really need to work on curating the shelves better (and no taking the shelves down is not an option).
