One of the critical elements, in our eyes, was the fireplace. Here was the sad little fireplace before the project.
In case you missed it, we really jump started the project when we found the perfect mantel. Once the mantel was finished we made a fireplace hearth from slate. We were thrilled with the look after we tiled the surround.
The outside looked perfect – but it was time to shine up its inner beauty. Doug (poor guy) cleaned the fireplace out before he painted with high heat black paint.
With that, the fireplace was done. Hip hip hooray!
Sure, the fireplace is finished, but the high gloss plan isn’t complete! Stay tuned!
P.S. One day we will run gas into it, but for now we’re just fine with regular ole’ logs.
