Y’all may remember reading “How The Grinch Stole My Christmas Mantel” – the post where I whined about the big plasma t.v. that G-Man got for Christmas that went above our mantel!
Well, it has taken me four months to get everything figured out with the design of the room! It’s as good as it’s going to get for now and I think it’s acceptable.
I am going to throw in some before shots of this area as well.
Four months after we put up the t.v
I finally have a look I can live with!
This was the day the cable guy came with the GIANT cable box
I almost cried –
Why can’t they make these things the size of an iPhone???
I hung the candle sconces on each side but nothing seemed grounded
And, notice all the wires? Of course you do!
We had them rerouted in the wall to a cabinet next to the mantel.
Before that, I didn’t think the plasma t.v. and I could co-exist peacefully!!!
Months and many, many designs later,
I finally arrived at something I like
(as much as one can like a t.v. over their mantel!)
I think this looks pretty good – better than I ever thought it would!
And, we are enjoying the t.v.
A Blast From The Past!!!
I loved the wall finish then…
but, I am so glad that I painted the room a lighter color
I will share the rest of our large ‘everything’ room in the next post.
