Oh, before I write about the DIY, this story
is just...whoa. The phrase 'whole lotta shakin' goin' on' springs to mind.
So, if you picture our living room/sitting room/lounge/what-have-you as a square, the sides are thus:
couch at bottom
radiator on right
fireplace on left
window at top
TV at corner top/right
door at corner bottom/right
We are moving it so that it will be thus:
radiator at bottom
couch on right
fireplace remains on left, adding TV wall mounted above
window still at top, adding dining table
door, of course, as well remaining in its original place.
The hardest part is moving the radiator. ybunny
and I unscrewed it from its usual location. He is currently trying to drop the wire down the wall where it will be connected to power. I just finished painting the spot where the radiator had been.
Without any further complications, we should have a redone living room by this evening. Then, shortly, we will have a new TV and table. Woo.
