Fireplace done!

Well, almost done, the painting still needs to be finished, but to be honest I hate painting and I'm not very good at it. I was just trying it out to see if I like the color. Luckily, my dad is a pro painter so once all the renos are done he'll come over and go to town on our place. I am so looking forward to that stage!!

I left the trim on the mantle shelves white and painted the back of the shelves with a super light beigey color. It helps the white accessories pop a lil more. We also plan on painting the rest of the main floor a lighter color, here was a bit of a test. Not sure if it's too light.


Today we also got a wall mount for the tv. It really helps to open the space.


Holy wires & dust bunnies Batman!

Here's the after
Box of Cuban cigars (yes there's still some in there)

I personally like the subtle contrast of the background color on the shelves.
I think your fireplace is so unique and what you've done with it is fantastic.
Congrats on the TV-- now you can watch all the HDTV from across the room it looks like!
have fun with it.
