Last weekend we headed back over to help Monique finish up her fireplace transformation. When we left, she had caulked and filled all the nail holes and was getting ready to sand and paint the whole thing.
Which she did before we got there! Looks amazing!
All that was really left was to change out the outlet to a nice white one, mount the TV bracket and TV, and get all the cords hidden and put away. As I’m continuously apologizing for – I have almost no photos of those activities. So sorry, but you’ll live, I’m sure. She purchased a nice narrow universal wall mount kit that only offered the angle adjustment and it worked perfectly as well as being very easy to install.
I told you Monique really likes the Command picture hanging strips – well she was ingenious and used them to put her Roku receiver and a power strip up hidden away behind the TV. She also has a wireless receiver for cable from the box that’s in the corner of the room. So she didn’t even need to have cable added to this wall! Clever!
We unloaded the sound bar, hid away all the cords and were done!
Here’s a different room perspective to see why mounting it above the fireplace was a good option for her. Her room is long and narrow with 2 openings, 3 windows and a door which does not leave much area for an entertainment center or media wall.
And she still made it work and it looks amazing! I also like that she doesn’t have a colossal TV here. Not that I have anything against colossal sized TVs, but it doesn’t compete with the fireplace as much at this scale Let’s see where we started and where we are now, shall we?
What a sweet little transformation just a little bit of work and very little money, really! $88 for the wood and about $90 for the TV mount – the rest we had on hand and between the two of us could get this done with a little fun mixed in! And thank you, Jake, for helping get the TV up!
And check out this daper fellow…
Wonder what he wants to watch?
What have you got up your sleeves for this weekend? Any planking or refacing or refinishing? Have a great one!
