That room again

I think I did a pretty good job of cleaning up the closet in my brown woman cave.  I painted the shelves white and the walls the ceiling blue.  It was a pain and is hard to see the blue, but I still think it was worth it. 
It is also more empty than ever before, and it should remain that way for about 72 more hours until I start desperately throwing crap in there.  Ok, I've already started the crap throwing.  But it's a neat throw.  I think. 
That fine piece of furniture blocking the view of the closet door is the Craigslist dresser I raved about here.  It goes along with a very nice electronic device that will be great for me during the very loooong football season when I am banished from the living room.  
I got my own 42" plasma - awe yeah!  I chose to wall-mount it because it's a small room and I wanted as much space between me and the tv as possible.  I also wanted to have the top of the dresser clear of tvs, components, etc.  I will have to share my brillz plan later...I promise there won't be any wires hanging down when I'm through! 
The mount we bought tilts up and down (doesn't swivel though) and was pretty darn easy to install.  Finally, people.  Something was EASY to install and didn't require crying.  I got the mount from Walmart.com for $40....and I'm so happy with it!  Check it out here.  This room is finally starting to look good - one long paint-drenched day at a time, right?

The woman cave looks awesome! Love the paint colors and your flat screen and dresser are making me drool.

I laughed a lot when I read, "Finally, people. Something was EASY to install and didn't require crying." I even had my hubby read it and then he laughed a lot too.

The room looks amazing. I'm excited to see what your plan is for the TV area.

i love that you have your own tv room, i also have one of those in our house. the dresser below the tv looks great, can't wait to see what you do next!

also, not gonna lie... the closet that i so proudly organized a few months ago is already messy again. so good luck to you!

Haha at "neat throw". I would say it's very neat. And hooray for an easy install that didn't require crying! :)

I love projects that don't require crying! They are my favorite. I haven't had one of those in a while.

Drools. We don't have a flat screen, let alone one just for me. :)

Projects that don't require crying are the best!

I love it! I wish I had my own TV - although I usually get to watch what I want, so I bet hubs would love HIS own tv! ha

Lisa said...

Wow, it looks great!

Nice tidy closet! Great room to lock yourself away from football.

I love the blue on the ceiling. I'm trying to find a nice pale blue for the family room ceiling and everything I pick looks great in the store then I get it home and it looks like a baby boy's nursery :(

Can't wait to see your finished room!!

Amanda said...

Awesome! I'm dreaming of a black... flatscreen (set to the tune of White Christmas).

I really am though. Love the wall mount, too.

I like the blue, subtle as it is...and how awesome, your own space to do as you please.

It looks fabulous. Can't wait to see the finished room!

You may have already answered this, but can you tell me the paint colors you used?

Thanks.

Nikki said...

Ok, I like all of it! I thinks it's great that you have your own tv, football season is VERY long.

Jenny said...

Sara I just love following your blog! I love looking at all your rooms you have remodeled and updated they are fabulous! I was wondering if you would ever do a layout of your house or video tour (like younghouselove)so we could see where everything is located? Just curious & maybe you already have and I missed it-Thanks!

Anon - the brown paint is 'Bark' by Glidden. I believe it's not in their color deck anymore, but I can give you the formula if you want it! The blue is Behr 'Harbor Sky' and it is really a blue-ish white more than anything.

I wish my closets looked like that!

Elisa @ What the Vita said...

I vividly remember how horrible it was mounting our tv on our tv set. Ugh. Glad you had it easy!

Kate@TwentySixToLife said...

I love projects that don't make me cry! Is it weird that I have closet envy now? Yours looks great!

Kim @ NewlyWoodwards said...

Niiiiice..... seriously. I think I need my cave during football season.

Amanda @ Little House on the Corner said...

Your own plasma TV?!?! Freakin' awesome! I've thought about mounting ours to the wall, but to be honest, it kinda scares me!

The closet looks fab - very organized!
