- We couldn’t mount the TV above the fireplace because it was just too darn big. We have since downsized to a smaller TV, but it is not the wall-mountable variety. Plus, I like being able to decorate the mantel and have a mirror above the fireplace. You can see more about our fireplace and built-ins here.
- We have hit a snag with the plans for lightening up the fireplace brick. I was in talks with a company to replace the brick with faux stone, but that fell through. Still working on a Plan B.
- We are a limited budget family, so replacing furniture or hiring electricians isn’t a top priority. I am thankful for all your ideas though, because when we do get around to those projects I will want the advice!
- When the living room is done, I will be sure to update this post so you can check it all out!
UPDATE: I still haven’t done a full reveal of the layout, but you can get a good sense of what it looks like in this post.
