The Fireplace Reveal.

We did it...we finally finished the fireplace. I am completely and utterly in LOVE with it! Nick did such an amazing job and worked so hard on this thing. To read the story from the beginning go here, here, and here.

First the before...


And now the after... 


We painted the tiles in front of the fireplace with a black high heat spray paint.


We put a piece of trim just below the mantle to give it some added dimension.



This is one of the original vent covers and I love it. Nick scraped and sanded about 50 layers of paint off this sucker to reveal a lot of little details that you couldn't see before.


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
