Mike was able to use the same piece of drywall he cut out to fix up the wall. Totally not my area of expertise but he did it and made it look easy. Honestly the longest part of the project was waiting for the drywall mudding to dry to make sure the wall didn't sink after. He had to apply three coats before we could prep the wall unit for paint.
The new chrome lights really carry into our new living space nicely with our new chrome hardware we added to the built ins. I’m in LOVE with the new pulls!
Tip: When updating your hardware use a template so all your handles line up. Then place masking tape on the doors or drawers so the surface doesn't split when drilling new holes because nobody wants that.
On to the painting! This is where I started happy dancing! We used this interior sprayer from Lowe’s to finish the wall unit. We decided to paint the wall behind the TV all white as well to make it look like one big unit. My jaw literally dropped when the painting was all done. I still can’t believe how much this has changed the whole feel of the space! Drab to FAB folks!
