Meet our new secretary!

Antique secretary that is. 

Let me give you a little background.  Our home is 9 years old and we have a built-in entertainment center/cabinet in our living room.  You can see our built-in in this previous post.  When our home was built, these wide flat screen televisions were not the standard yet.  So...our entertainment center will not fit the television that Hubby now wants/needs/deserves.  He suggested that we modify the built-in to accommodate the new television - but that means giving up precious space for photos and accessories.

In steps the secretary.  This is how the corner in our living room used to look.  Basically, we bought the giant ficus tree when we first moved in to fill that large space.

This is how the corner looks now.

I just love the height of this piece. And I love the tall legs and open area at the bottom.

I realize there's a lot in there to dust, but have you cleaned the dusty leaves of an artificial ficus tree lately?
