    Home Depot. They come in several colors, I got brushed nickel to match my hardware. I also used the better screw in drywall anchors, not what came with it.

    What do ya'll suggest to hide the wires behind TV, wall mounted speakers, etc?
    I'm looking at options to hide all cables when I get a new TV. I told the wife the best solution is a bigger TV to cover more space, but I'd like to Hide the Apple TV box, sound bar cable. I've been looking into a few smurf boxes and recessed outlets but wondered if anyone had good suggestions?

    The client purchased and provided this one. I have no idea what company it was. It was a pretty easy install. Just heavy.

    I've hidden an apple tv behind a tv with zip ties. Just zip tie it to the mount.

    No progress with "Operation Rat F$#k". Had a VA dental cleaning in Austin and when I came home, my wife wanted to drive out to Round Top - it's a town nearby that has a big antique show every year. We're talking miles of antique sellers from all over the world. It officially starts next week but they are getting set up now and have no problem selling early.

    Went there, came home and planted her Kumquat tree. It was a bitch to find but it finally got delivered. Even has little fruits on it.

    Gaffers tape works well too. I've got two Dell Optiplex 3080s attached to the digital signage TVs at work after IT just left them hanging.

    Busy day over here today. Landscapers planted everything this morning and tied them into our sprinkler system. AC guy came and ran the flex duct and installed the new ceiling register. Tile guy made some more progress on the bathroom floor.

    If you have the AppleTV app on the tv, you don’t need the box

    Got the living room tv mounted, the rest of the light fixtures in the bedrooms swapped out, internet got installed and I got the WiFi up and running, garage door openers configured to the WiFi, thermostat configured to the WiFi, battery eliminator installed on the trash can, and appliances got delivered and I got them up and running as well + WiFi configuration. Busy day!!! That’s all for today since it’s wifey’s birthday, but more tomorrow!

    Finished Phase 1 of "Operation Rat F$#k" - the deck has hardware cloth around it. Phase 2 has me up on the roof above the side porch buttoning up some questionable spots in the eaves. Little bastards...

    Finished the kids playset that I started last week or so with a lil canopy for the top and put some blue dye in the pond. Only had to put dye mostly on the west side of pond since wind was blowing hard enough early today to push it across it. I forget how easily it stains clothes and skin until a drop gets on you haha20210317_172731.jpg 20210317_192721.jpg 20210317_192926.jpg

    I thought the same at first. Lol. But I do it for 3 reasons. Helps keep algae down, helps tint the water making it more difficult for birds to pluck fish out of the pond, and aesthetics. I don't have any trees yet, so there isnt any shade or anything to hide from birds swooping in and snatching them, I've seen them do it.

    Gonna have a long drive I assume as pretty much no one here lives near me. But the fish are small. I need to stock some more bass in it cuz there's basically just perch right now. Always got food and beer at the house. Living in the country a lil makes you buy more in bulk and stock freezers and outside beer fridges

    I accomplished no visible wires in a few ways. First off I had to tear down all the Sheetrock anyway so I had good access behind the wall. I ran power and put in a dedicated outlet behind the tv. I bought a 6 plug outlet adapter to plug everything in. I did the TV, Apple TV and sound bar. I don’t have any form of cable so that was 1 less wire to worry about. I rolled up all the power wires and my HDMI and just zip tied them to my tv mount out of sight. I used one of these to mount the Apple TV to the TV itself. It works great. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B017S25FMA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_VK2D4NGXQYD1N6CJPRQS

    For the sound bar, I drilled a hole behind it and another up near my outlet. I ran the power and audio cable up behind the wall and out behind the TV.

    I did the same thing myself a year ago....we love it. My wife thought I was nuts - she's a great decorator but has trouble visualizing functional stuff. I told her to trust me; then simply bought one of these PowerBridge deals, and used my knowledge and a self-find....er, stud-finder ( :D ) to 'install' one behind the entertainment center and one in the middle of the bracket securing the TV to the wall. It worked out great and looks so much more professional. :)

    How do you like that fridge? We are thinking about getting rid of our L/R split style for the french door style Family Hub.
    I like the idea of having that smaller middle drawer for produce.

    I’m not the biggest fan because This is the third one we have had in our house because of issues. This one seems to work fine. We are an iOS house so the integration isn’t that good and we setup a SmartThings hub in our house just to talk to a few devices. We now have hue Insteon and SmartThings plus 4 alexia’s and a portal so it’s a dumpster fire of tech. If I was more motivated I would buy and program a cross platform hub to control everything.

    What issues did you have? I know Samsung doesn't have the best reputation now with appliances....
    The wifes phone is a samsung, i'm on a Pixel, so i figured that at least her phone will work well. We also have a fairly new tv that looks like its compatible with the screen mirroring. That really looks like a cool feature.
