Major progress

::Flops exhaustedly to couch::

Over the last couple of weekends, I've made two trips to Home Depot, three visits to the corner hardware store, three jaunts to IKEA; I've used up 40 hollow-wall anchors, a Ryobi battery pack, a Philips screwdriver bit, and a quart each of drywall mud, primer, and paint; and I've required several ibuprofen tablets...



Area 1.2, Living Room TV Corner, started out here:



then took this detour:



but finally today arrived at its destination:



Meanwhile, Areas 3.1.a, b, and c, Kitchen Hardware Shelves and The Floor Underneath 'Em, which started out here:



are also completely finished, with help today from avventura1234:





Holy shit, that was a lot of work! That's FOURTEEN areas done now. Fifty-two more to go.

I'm going to bed.

Wow -- that corner turned out great!! So nice and clean with the shelves and the lighting. Looks so awesome that you could really just stare at that corner without the TV on at all. Well, almost. :) All hail IKEA!

(Also, you're right that the paint match is spot on...I'm impressed.)

And is that the LOTR trilogy on the top shelf? And either Angel or Buffy on the second? If I'm right, I don't know if that makes me awesome or appallingly dorky.

And the Collector's Edition of Serenity?

...

...

Okay, scaring myself now. Stopping, stepping away slowly, and doing something...else.

The very one. Hee! Don't be scared. At least you didn't recognize Earth2, the Complete Series.

I actually haven't watched the Collector's Edition. I put it on with commentary, and really found that I didn't want to listen to it. It might be another year or two before I really feel like seeing that movie again.

Firefly, on the other hand, I can watch regularly, at any time.

Hee! LOTR, all of Angel, a couple seasons of Buffy, Wonderfalls, Firefly, Serenity (both editions) and the Harry Potter So Far.

We're both dorky. What can I say? I too watched LOTR over the holidays.

The thing I'm really beginning to appreciate about IKEA is how sort of malleable its items are--you really don't have to wind up with an IKEA house.

And yes, my sitting place is diametric to that corner and I do sit and enjoy looking at it. I'm doing it right now, in fact. It's very satisfying.
