A million years ago Three months ago, when we moved into our house, we planned on mounting our tv over the fireplace. The crazy old owners of the house had set up their media center smack dab in front of the giant picture windows, completely blocking out all the light. That crazy arrangement wasn’t going to fly with us. However, we weren’t quite sure how we wanted to execute our vision. First we planned to build a new wooden mantel out of large beams and walnut wood. Then we decided to scrap that, and just use what we already had. However, mounting still had to wait until I finished painting the bricks, which wasn’t something I could achieve while massively pregnant. After waiting two months to pop out our kiddo, then taking another two to paint this sucker, we finally got to the point that we could mount our tv! I ordered a 32″-60″ mount from Target online for about $55, which is so much cheaper than what they carry in stores. The Husbane took care of the mounting portion while I was out of town, and only had to buy a concrete bit since the mount came equipped with mounting hardware for brick fireplaces. How awesome is that? Way to go, Target! Our tv is finally off the floor, and our living room is complete! Woot!
Hooray! It only took us four months to get around to doing 😉 The cord situation isn’t the best ever, all I did was zip tie them together and nail the cluster to the wall, then paint over them so they blend in a little. We may come up with another solution down the road, but right now this works. It just feels so good to be finished with this time-sucking project.
Have you finished any projects lately that have taken forever to get done? Or are you still working on it?
