Night of Destruction

Alternate Title: How to Piss Off Your Neighbors Before You Even Move In

When I first looked at the house, we (my realtor, my parents, my boyfriend, and I) all agreed that the built-in entertainment center would have to go. I think it was built for an old chunky TV, so it’s really deep.

And the big, ugly thing overshadowed the beautiful fireplace.

My plan was to tackle some of the smaller projects before I my boyfriend took a sledgehammer to this thing. I was just going to repaint it to match the new wall color, but my mom pointed out that this would be “a bitch to paint” (yes, those were her exact words). And after our painting debacle in the master bedroom I couldn’t take anymore painting headaches, so it had to go!

Demolition started after work Tuesday…from about 6 p.m. -10 p.m. It was loud and the tile floors echo the sound throughout the house…hence the “How to Piss Off Your Neighbors” alternate title. We didn’t get any complaints, so hopefully it didn’t bother anyone too much.
And finally:

We were so excited that the dry wall wasn’t damaged and would just need a little patching! Yeah buddy!

On a completely unrelated note, I just hit 100 followers! Yay! Yay! Yay! Yay! Yay! Thank you so much for following along with my nonsense! Y’all are awesome!


  1. I know just what you mean! Last night I had to ask hubby to cut some hardboard for me, it was 11 by the time he got around to it. He then decided to use the table saw, which meant he had to open the garage door. All our neighbors go to bed by 9, so I am sure they were not real happy with us. Oh well, no complaints so far! Glad your house is coming along so well! It looks like it is going to be so cute!

  2. That must feel good to have done, though! so much fun with the new house!

  3. Can't wait to see how you transform this room. I bet it was kinda fun to demolish that built it, and a workout all in one.
