Last year I pulled out the old wood stove, and stuck my small entertainment stand in there until I got some time to get to work. Timing sucks with the crawlspace that needs a lot of attention, but I figured if I didn't get started, it would never happen.

I pulled out the old stand last night, moved the 70" flatscreen into the bedroom (it's like a theater screen next to the bed) and started on this today :D

Need to finish the top, electrical and supports, but it's started!


(how do I rotate these and make them larger? They aren't rotated on my computer.....)

It’s just cutting the 2x4s at the right length, figuring out the next step and winging it. I’d much rather have a nice cabinet design with plywood and such, but I don’t have the time or patience. Thanks :)

Almost done with the framing. Need some more nailing backers, then electrical.

Electrical ran and inspected finally! Too many other items on my to do list to get the wiring done in a quick timeframe. Sheet rock up and the outside corners are installed. What a pain in the ass putting the rock in the small boxes.

Just got done taping off all the walls in the living room and hallway for texture (removed the popcorn ceiling back in October 2016). Needed to get the entertainment center sheet rocked prior to getting the new knockdown texture done on the ceiling (since they tie together). Took the day off today, and wrapped the entire living space in plastic.... fucking blue tape sucks ass. Spent another 2 hours redoing all the tape that was falling off, before heading up the street to HD and picking up some regular masking tape :( Lesson learned - don't use blue tape to hold up plastic on the walls!

Once the plastic was up, I sanded the entire ceiling, removing all the loose crap. Once the sanding was done, I did a skim coat of mud down the entire hallway and about half the living room in places that had some issues. Currently I am waiting on that shit to dry, and plan on getting the knockdown texture on tonight.

What a day :|

Getting closer! Hardwood floors and new linoleum in the kitchen and bathroom - and back to the entertainment center. All primed and ready for texture.

Should be ready for the electrical to be finished soon as well as the finishing touches.

Are you using Imgur? If yes, then just click on a photo in your library (after you upload them). Then at the bottom right corner under "Sizes" choose "huge thumbnail" and then copy the "BBCode" link and paste it into your text box on the forum.

No, haven't jumped onto any place since Photobucket took a shit on everyone. Maybe I should jump on it and check it out.

I thought there was a way to add pictures here with different sizes, and where we could rotate them...

I dunno anything about that. I've been using Imgur since the photobucket debacle and I'm pretty happy with it. I don't post a ton of photos to forums now though.
