Well, Karen, I ended up pulling that beast of a TV (27″ CRT) and the entertainment center out. It has made me o-so-happy. Tons more storage, lots more light inside, an extra bed IF I ever need it, lol…
The storage on either side of that monstrous TV was limited and so far back, it was pretty much useless to me.
It does make a huge difference in the light inside, but also was a great source of cold coming in that front window without the entertainment center to block it. Next step, thermal curtains for that area! 🙂
Oh, and the TV ended up weighing 65 lbs!
