Surprise! Paneled Wall

You may have noticed in my NYE pictures that it's looking a little different in the living room these days.


Don't see anything different? Well, in case you didn't know, this is the TV wall as it had looked since I moved in:


Pretty boring, right? I always felt this wall was so bland and I thought about adding pictures, but I knew that wasn't what I really wanted for this area. I wanted to add some character to this space.


I decided on doing a paneled wall and after browsing Google Images, I finally got an idea of what I wanted and then I handed the project over to Eric. Here's the wall in-progress.


And almost done.



The grand finale!

I love it. The entire project was finished in 2 days. I was surprised at how inexpensive this project was as well. We just bought one sheet of MDF for $26 at Home depot and they cut all the pieces for us in the store.




I love the new paneled wall and how much character it adds to the room.  



And I know you're all digging the Guitar Hero World Tour drum set over in the corner... I can play most songs on hard on the drum set. Don't be jealous.




So there you have it.

It ended up so cute! I'm totally jealous of your drum skills. I'm pretty sure I've failed out of easy songs before.

Fantastic job Eric and Morgan. My husband is also very handy and clever with carpentry jobs around the house and it saves a bundle of money in labour costs.
Morgan I'm about to bake your red velvet cake..hope mine looks as good as yours!
