    How to Hide your TV Wires The FAST WAY! DIY In-wall power cord and cable installation!

    This should be a QUICK ONE! My 2nd, Livingroom project, is to hide my unsightly wires hanging from my TV!

    Check out my 6 min installation video!

    I did some research and I went for simplicity and speed of installation! I chose the Legrand-Wiremold CMK70 Flat Screen TV Cord and Cable Power Kit.

    This kit came with a hole saw, and fish tape that I can reuse later on! It is much simpler to cut a round hole then to fiddle with a drywall knife and make sure you have level rectangular cuts!

    I think the round box is the FASTEST way to do an in-wall installation!

    My Hallway Renovation – How to repair drywall, paint, and install baseboard molding and door casing!

    This Home Improvement project took a few weekends to get done, and I recorded a TON of footage for my YouTube video bellow. It took me a while to make this video so it’s finally here!

    In this video I cover:

    • How to repair and prep drywall, fix nail pop outs and cracks
    • How to prime and paint your walls
    • What primer and paint I used
    • How to install door trim/casing
    • How to install baseboard molding, and corners in particular
    • How to caulk door casing and baseboard molding

    I have enough footage on each of the above to do a detailed tutorial for each but the 10minute video will do for now. 😁

    TV Wall Mount – Goodbye crappy TV speakers and soar neck! Hello beautiful picture and sound!!!!

    Over the winter break I finally got around to mount my TV on the wall!

    I am a bit of a “baby audiophile” and I’ve been itching to bring a part of the home theater sound system into my family room! I couldn’t do that before because the TV was resting on the shelf and there was no room for my receiver and center channel… no receiver meant no big boy speakers either 😎. Also the TV was sitting too low, and it always put a strain on my neck when I tried to relax on my couches.😒

    My neck and my ears had finally had enough!!!!

    So, the solution was to mount my TV on the wall, free up the necessary shelf space, and be more comfortable when watching.

    Read on to understand the reasons behind my methods, and check out my YouTube Video to see how I found MY best placement, and how I mounted the TV on the wall.

    I was going to mount the TV on the wall anyways, so there is no point to wait for my “major renovation” of the family room. I can actually enjoy watching shows and movies NOW, so lets do it!

    Lets get Started! First project on YouTube! Edgeband Rework!

    Ok, so bare with me 🙂

    I have taken the first leaps and have created a YouTube account and an Instagram account!

    I have already started posting content there, and it’s a bit overwhelming. It is only one YouTube video but it took me several nights over two weeks to actually edit something that resembles YouTube content :). I used an open source video editing software called Shotcut https://shotcut.org/ and it worked out pretty great. I was quite surprised how fast I picked it up, but when it comes to sound editing… I will leave that for the next video.

    Check out my first Video!

    Until next time… go make something! 🙂
