We always had the record player itself, but it stood on a different stand before. You may see the before picture here. This picture shows the old entertainment center and the old record player stand next to the TV. This picture was taken before one of the glass shelves mysteriously shattered while we weren't home. Thank goodness none of the heavy components were on that shelf! Anyway, my awesome friend Jana gave us this record player stand when she moved into a different house and Alec refinished it to match the entertainment center he built. The living room looks so much better and warmer now! I also love having our records alphabetized and accessible. Now I just need to make some cool dividers for them.
