Almost everyone has a TV in their home and decorating around it is usually a challenge. I’m past the point of decorating around it and have just embraced the fact that we watch TV and it will be in our home. Period. But here’s my issue….
Never mind the abundance of toys and books, that’s just the current state of our house. We have kids therefore we have toys. My issue is safety. You may remember I did a quick makeover of this cheap Ikea media stand to make it taller and that’s worked great. But my kids are also getting taller. I’m constantly pulling my girls off the stand and have been since they first learned to pull up on it. Little Miss June has recently found the buttons and cords and it’s now her new favorite way to get my attention. She reaches for it and smiles at me, she knows what she’s doing. The TV is anchored to the stand, but I’ve got to do something before they’re tall enough to knock the whole thing over.
As you can see, we don’t have much room for a taller or bigger stand, nor do we have many options for room arrangements if we put the TV in another location. I’m just stuck and open for suggestions!
