Well, we only owned the house for one day when we began unleashing our wrath upon the cute stone abode.
What was once referred to as "move-in condition" can now be described instead as "filthy, dusty, sticky, and full of holes." A series of unfortunate events led to the near decapitation of Andrew's father (use caution with broken mirrors!) and several more major projects for the father-son duo to undertake before we can move in on Sunday.
I'm doing my part of course--pleading for permission to remove the god-awful backsplash and promptly taking the hammer to it before the men had time to change their minds. "Oh, what's that? You weren't planning on doing much renovation in the kitchen? Haha! Suckers!"
(Side note: manual labor is hard work! I woke up on Sunday feeling like my arms were jelly fish. Or gummy bears. And then my bones fell out!)
Anywhoodle, at this point we have our paint colors picked out and a general game plan for each room. There's just one problem. Our living room is laid out in such a way that we have limited options for where to put the TV. We can either:
1. Put TV to the left or right of the fireplace (asymmetry makes me cringe)
2. Mount TV above wood-burning fireplace (fireplace is currently inoperable but can be fixed & mantle is considerably low so viewing height would not be too uncomfortable--but where will the wires go!?)
Give me your thoughts! Is there an option I'm forgetting? Does anyone know how I can harness the power of magic to solve this issue?
