Our home is small and there wasn’t really a designated area in the living room for the TV. The way the living room is laid out, you would think you’d need to put the TV area on one of the side walls. Well, to us that would have made the room even smaller, so we decided to hang the TV over the fireplace. Problem was, there wasn’t anywhere for all the little black boxes to live.
Here’s a blurry picture we snapped while touring our home before we bought it. We knew right away that paneling had to go! It was covering every wall in our tiny living area.
