TVs on the Wall

We've made some progress in the electronics department!

This is our TV in the kitchen, freshly mounted on the wall. Random right? Well it won't be hooked up to cable, but the internet where we'll be able to watch Netflix, Hulu, and browse the web (recipes anyone?).

Our electrician, and good friend Chris will be back tomorrow to finish the electrical work. It's good to know an electrician since this can get tricky!

That brings me to our living room. Definitely a work in progress.

The goal is to get this 50 in Plasma, up there. Tomorrow.

Wallpaper.. the 8th Deadly Sin

Our dining room had a problem. Fussy wallpaper. Lots of it. We decided we could live with some wallpaper, but not all of it.

Naively, we started the removal process. What a mess! Luckily, my mom and grandmother were on hand to guide us. Apparently, my grandmother was a wallpaper fiend in the 70's and so my mom became an expert at removing it decades later.

Here's the progression. Once it was (almost) all off, we decided to paint the top part of the wall above the chair rail Sherwin William's Taupe Tone, just like the living room.

The most satisfying part of the removal process? Yanking off a huge piece. Here's Matt with his Trophy Wallpaper Piece.
