A Living Room Suite Fit for a Queen!
In 2003 my wife and I purchased our first house. It was in a little town called Berea, KY and boasted 1400 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and was everything you could want in a 1990’s home. It had oak floors, oak vanities, oak kitchen cabinets and an oak front door. So when we realized we needed an entertainment center and end/coffee tables we obviously chose oak. For anyone below the age of 25, believe it or not there was a time where with technology bigger was better. I had a LARGE 36” CRT flat screen TV, a Pioneer Gold head unit and 50 disc changer and a collection of DVD’s and VHS tapes to envy. It felt that it was my duty to build a piece of furniture that would not hide, but show off all of my large electronics. It took me about a year to build all 4 pieces of the living room suite which was just about the same amount of time for my wife and I to decide we didn’t like oak! This was also about the time we saw our first “slim” flat screen TV. So after using the furniture for a few months we did the only thing that made sense. We gave it to my mother and father in law who use it to this day.
