So, we’ve all been hanging at home for the past seven months or so, and we’ve done lots of ‘stuff’ to keep busy.
Let’s share the ‘best’ and the ‘craziest’ thing we’ve done. I’ll go. 🙂
We’ve actually done several inside and outside projects that have turned out well, but the #1 best on the list is purchasing and installing an electric fireplace in our family room. We have one with a mantle surround to hold a tv in the bedroom, and we’ve wanted one in the family room, but couldn’t really see a logical place for it.
I finally looked at our entertainment center one day and thought – how about taking the books out, moving the electronics, taking out the shelves and removing the doors. So, we did.
We measured and ordered a Dimplex model that would fit, slid it in, plugged it in, and we had heat and flames. (We bought a Dimplex unit because we have had that brand before, and it performs well.)
We tweaked it a little by adding a rectangular piece of embossed metal on the top that directs the heat away from the electronics and added two pieces of peg board that I painted black to match on the sides to fill out the empty space. Love it!
I’ve cleaned cupboards, closets, attic, garage, replaced drapes and a couple of area rugs, but this past weekend I decided to try and corral some cords so I got rid of two gray surge protectors and got everything plugged into one black one to blend with the entertainment center.
At that point, I just had a laugh out loud moment and decided I had been home way too long if I was down to organizing my electronic cords. 🙂 Although, if I’m being honest here, I will admit that a couple of months back I also purchased a new charging station and organized all those cords.
Now, fess up as to your best and funniest of your at home projects. Come on, let’s start the week with a chuckle. 🙂
Stay well this week, the numbers are getting crazy out there.
By the way, the ‘+’ sign on my MG Instagram account just showed back up one day last week. I wish I had a logical explanation, but I don’t. 🙂
