So moving on to the next project...
Our closet was being worked on in December. For over a year Chris had talked about getting a big screen tv. I'm not against big televisions, but as you can tell, we didn't really have the option of getting one.
Cue Peter the cabinet guy and suddenly the idea of heading to Best Buy and buying a tv suddenly became a project.
Before: television circa 2000, weight about 500 pounds (or so it felt), all cords and auxiliary outlets in the back making it impossible to hook up a gaming system or just about anything else.
During: The bottom half remained intact, but the top was completely gutted.
The day big boys dreams come true:
The (immediate) after:
That black speaker above and another black box in the corner became permanent decor. The cabinet below the tv which was really roomy and great storage became home to more electronic "toys" and the surround sound has added a whole new dimension to watching Diego.
And then I decided to tackle a little home improvement. I hated this brass around the fireplace. I read about a quick fix and decided to give it a try.
