Over the weekend Mj invited his friends over to participate in some unpaid labor. That's what friends are for right? He bought this 55" 3D monster of a TV about a year ago and ever since he's been talking about mounting it. I was against it because I'd heard it could cost hundreds of dollars and it just didn't seem worth it to me when it's fine just sitting there on the table. TV's are so thin now, they really don't take up much space. I also have a fear of putting holes in our walls. We aren't renting so we can do whatever we want but for some reason this fear has not gone away.
Well, he didn't listen to me of course and he finally did it. He found everything he needed on Amazon for about $100 and the only labor cost was burgers and beer for the guys so it actually turned out to be a pretty inexpensive project. I thought the destruction of the wall would be much worse but only two squares of drywall were removed and they were filled in with plastic inserts. He and his friends did a great job. I love the way it looks. There are no cords and it just floats there ever so perfectly like a picture on the wall. Like magic. So yeah, Mj was right about getting hardwood floors and about mounting the TV. It looks great and I'm just glad he didn't have to spend a lot to do it. Now, if only I could finally finish decorating and find something to put on all of those empty surfaces...but not too much otherwise dusting is a real pain in the butt.
