And here's the new TV!
It's very nice and I'm very blessed to have been able to get it.
My brother and I hung it on Sunday - but it's too low. And since my brother and I were at the end of our collective patience by the time we got it up I figured the best thing to do was have my charming handy man come over here and scootch it up for me.
My brother - such a guy - looked at me and said "You mean you're willing to pay somebody to come over here and move the TV up 2 inches?"
"Yes. Yes, I am."
What you can't really see in this picture is that the top of the outlet and the conduit for the cords can be seen - which isn't cool. My brother and I used one of the holes that was drilled for the previous bracket and the TV just ended up too low. So on Saturday it's moving up 2 or 3 inches which will make it look better.
So now all my friends who told me to buy the bigger TV can relish in knowing that they were right and I was wrong.....
And the 'old' TV is now upstairs in the guest bedroom.....
