Looks good.

I can't commit to cutting holes in my wall, so I just bought a tall entertainment shelf and mounted my tv about a 1/2" above it, and all the cords hide behind it.

Honestly once you do it its NBD. I mean measure 47 times cut once of course yo make sure what you do is what you want but the payoff is nice. And people rarely move TVs once they get them right.

And patching drywall is easier than youd think, I was hesitant but learned. Skilled guys are faster as I have to do multiple passes of mud and sanding but the end result is just as good.

Yup. Working on a motorcycle everything is super precise, working on a car is a lot less precise in comparison, working on house stuff is off the chart on the a lot less precise.

to be fair even the skilled guys should be doing multiple passes if they want it to look as good as possible...
