If you're anything like me...you have a long list of tiny, annoying house projects that seem to pile up. I remember my sister-in-law saying once for her birthday that her husband's gift to her was finishing up a slew of those kinds of projects. Lucky lady!
We have a gazillion annoying projects that aren't earth-shattering...but need to be done! Hanging our basement TV on the wall was one such project.
After getting almost completely done remodeling our basement...we had to stop because of the water damage. So...for 3-ish years the basement has looked pretty much the same. When we were 'homeless' Michael slept in the basement and the TV was put on a bench at the far end of the room. (with no service...he could only watch DVDs or whatever we had recorded on our DVR before we moved out of our rental) Warning...this picture is scary...and shocking to think back to Michael living like this for almost 6 months! (Mostly because this picture was taken a couple months into our homeless phase. When Michael first moved into the basement there were kitchen cabinets and stuff stored down here and he just had to make enough room to lay down.) SO glad this is behind us!
After a few disappointing minutes when we realized the TV hanging hardware we had wasn't going to work (woops)...we just used one that was intended for our bedroom TV (which we still don't have) and plan B worked just fine. (despite the extra holes you see that had to be cut out so the cords had enough room to actually plug into the back of the TV...woops again)
