We have finally entered in to the new age of television! For our birthdays' my parents bought us a new flat screen TV since they felt bad that we were still using our HUGE tube TV from the early 2000's. I have always known that when we got a flat screen TV that I wanted it to be mounted over our fireplace, but we had a problem we had a HUGE out dated fireplace! I knew it was time for a make over for our fireplace and to wire the wall where the TV would be mounted so we wouldn't have to see ugly electrical cords and wires. The first step that Jack did was to lower the fireplace by two rows of bricks.
The next step was to remove all of the dry wall where the new electrical was going to be installed. Jack has had a lot of experience wiring now so this was a really quick step.
Next he added the new insolation.
Lastly, he put up the new drywall and sanded the edges of the old to have a smoother transitions when he taped the seams. Once the seams were dried he added wall texture to the new drywall and primed and painted the original yellow since we hadn't decided on a new living room color yet!
After the paint dried we installed the mount and the new TV. It has taken some adjusting to look at the TV in a different location, but we totally love it and is looking forward to finishing the fireplace facelift at the end of the year!
I created this blog to share my creations with hopes that it will inspire others to show their creative side.
