This time last weekend, we were assembling our family room entertainment center! I am happy to say this morning it is in full use and more beautiful than I ever pictured it!
Last Friday night, my husband and I carefully measured, re-measured and measured again all the dimensions we would need to build this thing. My husband was like a mad scientist with the pencil behind his ear and his plans laid out on the kitchen table darting from one area to the next with the tape measure. We had to remeasure several times and I was already thinking, oh no, we are gonna mess this thing up.
Early saturday morning while I was feeding the kids, he took off to Home Depot to buy the wood and have them cut all the pieces to our specifications.
Then we set the kids up with technology in their hands, (one of the good things about this day and age) we got busy assembling what we envisioned in our minds.
I am so so glad my husband agreed to the electric fireplace we put into it, because it totally makes a difference in its appearance.
First thing we did was build a base for the fireplace to sit on and make sure the fireplace was secure inside the base with the proper framing.
Once the entertainment center was together, we sanded some areas and caulked all the drill holes, and I actually got it primed that evening ready to be painted the next day.
