Hey guys

Been a couple of years since my last project, we are currently doing reno's upstairs right now. These consist of:
  • Replacing existing Lino with tile
    Replacing existing carpet with Hardwood
    Redoing family room fireplace (this project)
    Redoing master bathroom (tile shower, etc)

Here's a couple of pics how it looked before:




I know it looked pretty decent, but we almost had to redo it for two reasons:

1. The existing hearth tiles wouldn't match the tiles in the rest of the house. It would have been quite difficult to remove and replace the tiles without damaging the area.
2. We wanted a bigger, wall mounted TV. The TV in the pics is an older Toshiba LCD, 37". We replaced it with a Samsung LN46C630.

I ordered an articulating mount from monoprice, it's a great value but the major issue I have with it is it has to be mounted off center. You'll see in the pics.

It's model #4562 if anyone's wondering.

Deconstruction pics:

Hearth removed, new tiles laid:



Wall mounted. You can see how I had to put the supporting structure off center by about 2.5". I'm not sure if it's common amongst articulating mounts?

Still haven't grouted the tile and I'll have to do a temporary fix for the carpet to finish it for a month or two until I can get around to the hardwood. This gives an idea of the size of the fireplace. We will be covering it in stacked stone, similar to my basement (see sig).

Just waiting for the stacked stone.





Behind the TV - access to Satellite reciever and WD media player:





Hopefully I'll get the rock in this week and get this project completed. I think it'll look pretty good.

So I'm not bothering to put the baseboards on until I do the hardwood, but here's a few finished pics. If you look at the bottom left of the fireplace I have a Monoprice IR repeater, it actually works pretty good as long as both the receiver and repeater are pointed properly.

I know it's not really a home theater, but I appreciate when posters put up pics of even minor projects so here you go. Thanks for looking.





Couple of before/after:
