Living Room redo part deux: Hello lights and fixed window trim!

Here we go, it's time for the electrical! We had a few companies put bids in before choosing our electrician. Let me tell ya, they're expensive! Definitely worth it to not burn our house down or electrocute ourselves! Mr. Scribs cut all the holes for the outlets and boxes for the lights. It was easier than expected once we made sure there wasn't any studs where we wanted everything.

We put gang boxes in where the TV would be so there is no visible wires, everything goes in the wall behind the TV and out near the bottom. Well worth the extra money and effort to not see any ugly cords!
All the windows and doors on the first floor have the same trim. They all have the weird over-hang on each side. I don't get it. Doesn't make any sense to me, so we took it down, cut the extra off and fixed it.



Much better! Up next the fun stuff, paint swatches! Don't forget about part one!
