The Curse of The Giant Television

This morning, I spent over two hours putting this together,only to come to the conclusion, that it’s just not substantial enough for the space.  Hello, waste of time.  I like the shelf well enough, and I can definitely put it to use in another room, but I would have waited to buy it, and definitely would have waited to put it together had I known that it wasn’t going to work in the living room, and that it was going to take so long.

Not that it matters whether it worked or not, the room is far from being finished.  Look what the sound installation guy went and did. Beautiful, right?  I swear, the harder I try to pull this room together, the more it falls apart.

This tv, long after it’s been paid for, is still costing us money and we haven’t even gotten the speakers installed (see pipes in hole in wall).  So much for in wall speakers.  Which really sucks, since my husband bought the speakers from someone in some other part of the country and the seller is not exactly offering to take them back. He told my husband that for fifty dollars he could easily build a box for them. He knows some guy in Arizona who did it and it looked great. I asked my husband who “he” was?

And let’s not forget about the patch job that has to be done now on the hole, oh, yea, and this one too. At least the installer was smart enough to poke around on one side, before cutting a huge whole in my drywall.  Too bad it was the wrong side.

Now, I’m going to have to re-paint the entire room, including the dining room because they share a back wall.  Can you believe this?  Just when I had finally gotten used to the color.

I’m beginning to think the tv is cursed.

Oh, well, off to put even more shelves together.  I’m hoping I can put these to good use in my laundry room.  Though, I have to tell you, I’m starting to wonder if I should be spending less time building shelves and more time on throwing things out.


Hope your Friday was more productive than mine.  Happy Weekend!

  1. I always wonder at what point in your life you no longer have to put furniture together:) I feel like I just moved out of my parents whenever I have to put my furniture together, if you know what I mean 😉

  2. I feel your pain. My husband cut an 8 foot hole in our wall in order to mount our tv…and I had to patch it and paint it the week before we had a huge 30th birthday party for him. Oh, and we still have a hole in our ceiling by the front door from a plumber. I’ve been waiting for my husband to take care of that for like 2 years. I don’t even see it any more, but I’m sure everyone who walks into our house wonders why we have a hole in our house, right by the front door…
