Got a TV Stand

Finally have something to put my TV, XBOX and Wii on. I wanted this a bit earlier but Walmart was out of stock when I asked my friend to get it (so I could use his discount). He suggested I order it online at some point if I really wanted it. I kind of gave up hope until I was browsing the site and saw it had gone from $63 to $43. I jumped on that and it ended up being about $54 after tax. Overall it was a better deal than if I had of used my friend's discount.

The finished product. I spent at least 20 minutes peeling off a stupid paper sticker and half that time putting it together. I almost spent about 20 minutes in total chasing Mynx and yelling at her. She was trying to eat the styrofoam and apparently trying to delete songs off my iTunes library!

This is also the futon couch I got that was on sale. I'm great at running into sale items!

I also managed to get a nice Debby Travis ottoman when I went in to Canadian Tire to get a vacuum cleaner. It was right by the front doors. It was $189.99 and I got it for $49.99. Obviously someone had returned it and they probably thought it was damaged. At most it has a tiny scratch on one side that you can only see at a specific angle with a certain amount of light. It sits in front of the futon as a foot rest, table, storage space and who knows what else. I could hide in it! Or put Mynx in it when she's pissing me off... Mewahahaa! (I would never actually do that...)

Good deals. I like the kinda minimalist style of the stand too!

Agreed. That stand is awesome. I like the way it holds the DVD player and the Channel Box. Canada is great with those kind of designs. I have a wall unit from Canada that has similar clever design, don't know what I'd do without it as it has all of my books, and papers in it. As well as a couch that I won't find like that ever again. One of the best buys I've done in my life time of owning worldly goods. Cool

Nice stuff at good prices, L. Yes, I want to see you try to get Mynx into that ottoman and keep her in it. She'd shred you. laugh

You are the only person in the world that lays their x box flat. Everyone else stands theirs up! Have you noticed?
Doesn't matter I lie mine flat too, that way it doesn't get knocked over when dusting, tell the cat that too. This is amazing do you know I have the exact same tv. I got mine at best buy I think when they were on sale. Works great! Even the Walton's look better.
