    Hi Everyone-

    The LACK is awesome for our 32 inch flat panel TV. We’ve had no bowing issues at all. If you want to see more cat photos, check us out at Lots of pics of our two little fur balls.

    Thanks again for the super nice comments!

    We used the LACK coffee table as our tv stand for our 42 inch plasma… Which is pretty heavy. This is a cute hack!

    how well does the coffee table hold up as a tv stand? im considering doing that for lack of more affordable option but i cant find the weight limit for the coffee table anywhere.

    does the cat come standard with the Lack?

    Hehe the cat rocks – shame he/she doesn’t match the furniture ;)

    Thanks for the comments, everyone. Bwash- I’m almost positive that the bookcase was from Target, but I can’t find a link. It’s nearly the same as the 2-shelf Billy bookcase from Ikea.

    Where is the bookcase from?

    And I loved that fluffy detail on the right side of the 1st picture!!!

    Simplicity is growing nowadays, because it is the demand of time in price hike. that TV shoudn’t be there.
