Soon after we got married, we found a steal of a deal on an awesome tv. We purchased it, but could not afford a tv stand at the time. So we settled for this:
Can anyone say GHETTO?? I would seriously cringe every time I saw it. I was almost embarassed to have people over because I hated how it looked.
But considering that we were(still are) poor newlyweds, we just dealt with it and knew eventually we would have something better than 2 stools to put our tv on.
Uncle Sam was good to us, so we decided to use some of our tax return to purchase a tv stand. We searched EVERYWHERE! RC Willey, John Paras, Downeast Home, RC Willey Outlet, Ashley Furniture, KSL, etc.
We saw several we liked, but they were all too expensive. We weren't about to spend $600 on a tv stand, no matter how much we liked it. It's not worth it when you live in an apartment and don't know what your future living arrangements will be.
One day while Josh was in Wal-Mart, he found this:
Upgrade? I think so.
It was a great find, and was under $150! It's definitely not the highest quality tv stand around, but it looks good and it works perfect for us for now!
Thank you, Wal-Mart.
