I could just kick myself in the patoot (if I were limber enough) for wasting most of yesterday afternoon on a big project that was totally unnecessary.
I was eager to get my "new" TV set up in my quilt room. ("But why?" she asks herself. "You haven't spent any time in there for-EVER!") This new TV I've acquired stands two inches taller than the old relic I've had in there. So that meant I'd have to raise the shelves above where it will sit. This was not a happy thought because 1) I'd have to unload everything from the shelves, and 2) I'm short so raising the shelf would mean more stretching and more frequent hauling out of a stool to reach objects that would now be two inches farther out of my grasp.
This is the old TV and shelf placement.
Empty shelves ready to be removed and hiked up to their new spot.
Shelves raised, new TV in place and nearly everything else put back where it belongs.
If you look closely at the TV set, you'll see that the front of it rises a little higher than the shelf edge behind it. That's because when I measured it, I didn't take into consideration that it is only the very front part of the TV that wouldn't fit under the shelf in its old, lower position and that same front part of the television set DOESN'T EVEN GO UNDER THE SHELF!!
Talk about not carefully looking at the whole picture. Dumb and dumber! All by myself.
I think I'll sign off now and go see what else I can find to waste time on.
