Arranging a living room can be challenging enough when you have a fireplace, but throw in a tv and it gets even more complicated. When arranging our family room, the fireplace and the mantle are the two things I find myself working around the most. And by the way, I rarely get to watch tv which ups the frustration factor even more. We currently have our tv in an armoire and I have had it listed on craigs and in our local paper but still no takers. If we do eventually sell it, I would love to find something smaller that takes up less visual space. Mr. wants to mount it above the fireplace, but I have been looking at credenzas and corner tv stands.
