We have a big huge cabinet with doors in the living room, and I hate it. It's nice enough, but it's an eye suck. It's a big black hole that draws your eyes right to it, and I don't like that being the focal point of the room. We bought it when DS was a newborn, intending to shut the doors when it wasn't in use. We didn't count on kids yanking on the doors, slamming them shut, and banging them against the wall. So now the doors are tied open so they can't be messed with. I want to sell it soooooooooo bad!
In the family room though, we have a coffee table from Target and I love it. I want one for the living room, too. It's big enough to hold our 27" TV (the old kind with a big massive back to it) and a stereo. There is also a shelf for DVD player, etc, and two small drawers under, where we hold remotes and stuff.
Here's a link to the table. It's supposed to be a coffee table, but I think it's too tall for that. http://www.target.com/dp/B000DEM2JA/...8&pf_rd_t=5101
