So DH finally put the two shelves next to the two TVs in our living room.  An electrician is here as we speak moving the outlets up so they are behind the TV.   When he is finished there will be no wires, outlets or phone extensions there.  The wall underneath will be completely bare.

I would like to put something along the wall under the TVs because they look so plain but I don't know what.  We're not going to paint the walls anything but white because we will not be here that long.  We are moving in 2-ish years and will rent this place out, it's a pita to paint the walls over and over.  

Any suggestions?  I am probably the least creative person ever.

A buffet type table would be nice. A long but thin one, nothing bulky. You could put family pics all over it in diff sized frames to dress it up a bit.

I know I'm asking for a lot here but can you google some for me and post them on here.  I never even thought of that!  Would you get a colorful one to make the room pop?

We have a brown and black theme going on.  Our Furniture is chocolate leather, our throw rug is dark brown and the TVs and shelves are black.  Our side table is brown and our lamps are black.

A buffet table or a dresser would look cute! Maybe with family pics on it. And... just curious, why the heck do you have two TVs right next to each other? Lol.

I just realized I said pretty much the exact same thing as the last person, sorry. Lol.

I like the idea of the long thin table underneath.


Question though. Why the 2 tvs?

Pottery Barn has media storage.  Let me grab some pics.

A long, not bulky buffet table or something for storage

I would say something that looks like a built in shelf. Maybe like a mock entertainment center. It would have to span the wall to make it the focal point. Can I ask why there are two tvs? That might help.
