Fireplace makeover 2: The reveal...
Finally! After a month of work, our fireplace makeover is complete. And it is fabulous, as you’ll see. My love, who did all of the hard work, really did an absolutely amazing job.
Here’s what the fireplace looked like before:

I just love what the fireplace makeover does for the room ~ it makes everything seem more elegant. The fireplace has always been the main focus of the living room so I couldn’t be happier. What do you think?
