This computer armoire was purchased many years ago. At that particular time we had a desk top Dell with a printer, etc.
Unfortunately computers do not last forever and in time we found ourselves replacing the larger model with a lap top. No longer was the armoire needed to house a tiny portable Notebook. Thus in my estimation it had become a white elephant.
Hubby had the idea to re-purpose it for our television. To put it mildly I was very dubious. In the first place it is not a piece of furniture easily moved. Secondly I liked the television where it was in the room. Thirdly in order for the telly to fit there would have to be modifications made to the tv's base. All of which made me a bit apprehensive. With much persuasion my beloved was able to get me to at least give him a hand to see if it would work. Bless his heart for not giving up when his partner was anything but encouraging.
After several hours the project was finished.
To say the least I was "eating crow". Not only did it work but it gave this particular spot in our home a welcome change and made television viewing much more cozy.
There are moments in life when being closed to options can keep one from experiencing something better. This small example made me realize that taking risks or even seeing things in a different light can lead to greater opportunities.
One of those opportunities might be to make my sweetie a coconut cream pie. He certainly deserves it for teaching me a valuable lesson.
