The story of our living room

When we first bought the house in 1989. The oil furnace died after the 2nd winter and blew black smoke throughout the house. Our home owners insurance covered it and we had the entire inside repainted professionally. The living room had an oil based painted trim. It was an off-white color. For at least the past 10 years Chris has wanted to repaint the living room. I have been very reluctant to do so since painting is one of my least favorite things to do. Chris gave me a VERY good incentive this time. She said I can buy a flat screen TV when we finish the living room. It is really our Christmas present to each other.

So Saturday morning we took everything out of the living room and taped off the windows and floors. Sunday morning we painted the ceiling and primered the trim. We then painted the walls. The next day Chris textured the walls with a rag. She had taken the entire week off so on Tuesday she painted the trim. We put the room back together on Wednesday and at the end of the day we took off for our trip to the coast. When we got back on Sunday we stopped in Video ONLY and bought a Toshiba 42" LCD 1080p TV! Now I just have to convert to HD DirectTV and buy a used X-Box 360 and we are all set!
