I wanted to keep my entertainment neat for Christmas but I also wanted it to look nice. To hide some of our family clutter, I came up with a simple decorative solution:
Let’s first take a look at the problem area…
A couple of boys, who shall remain nameless, (funny since they are nameless on my blog!) haven’t been as neat as they should when putting away movies and toys!
So this is what it looked like when the doors were closed.
No, I guess that little Christmas swag decoration wasn’t hiding anything!
Sure, I could have them clean it, but let’s be realistic. With all the Christmas movie-watching and playing around these last few days, we’d be back to the mess in no time.
And with all my present wrapping and running around I will not have time to keep it neat either. Who has time for organization during the holidays?
So, what was my solution?
As a temporary fix, I decided to tape some burlap to the inside of the doors.
(And if I had a better camera and/or the glare wasn’t so bad, you could actually see how it turned out!) – lol
This close up gives you a better idea. See – no more clutter!
Here is the shelf above the door. Yeah, these Christmas plates are everywhere this year!
And this is the area above the TV. It’s always fun decorating around the lovely cable box.
You might notice I moved the chairs around in here to accommodate the Christmas tree you see reflected in the TV. I will probably do a post on my tree. But let me warn you, I let the kids decorate it and for the first time ever, I did not edit a thing on it! It’s our family tree and they were SO proud of themselves for decorating it that I didn’t have the heart to move anything. It’s actually pretty cute.
Anyway, that’s my quick fix for the entertainment center!
