The Fireplace Redo

So when we moved into the house one of the major things that was frustrating and really a bugger was the fireplace— I mean a Sheetrock mantle?? really? Who ever thought those looked good? and the hole for the T.V. didn’t fit Dave’s “man” T.V. 🙂 So I knew I wanted to change it- but I didn’t know what into? I didn’t want to spend to much money either or do any major floor plan changes– So needless to say it sat there forever – I couldn’t figure out a way to make it look better– well a way that both me and Dave could agree on too 🙂

Here’s the Before:

I did immediately paint the walls and trim when we moved in so it looked a little better 🙂  but I don’t have any pictures of that- or how horrible it looked when we had our tv just sitting on the ledge– with the wires hanging everywhere– It was great- let me tell ya. 🙂

Here it is Now:

This was the first project that I didn’t really have at least a vague plan for– We really just flew by the seat of our pants on this one— One day still looking at the eyesore the next demoing it cuz’ I couldn’t stand it anymore 🙂

gotta love a sexy man with a saws-all 🙂

When we finally figured out kinda what we were gonna do there was some major angle math figuring involved– all I can say is that I am glad Dave is so smart cuz’ I would have never been able to figure it out

We did live with it like this for awhile– while we tried to figure out how we were gonna finish it 🙂 Fun times- fun times.
 But hallelujah– It’s done– I like it- Our T.V. fits– and really we spent only about $100 to do it–What do you think yay or Nay on the redesign? 🙂
