Fireplace Renovation Reveal

We have officially kicked the fireplace renovation's butt! 

I'm not gonna lie, it lasted longer than either of us thought it could. 
That's normally how it goes, right??

We started with a very dated 1970's lovin' fireplace with a custom 2 x 4 mantle. 
(Rollin' my eyes here)
That handy hubby of mine tore it up! 

This past week, I have slowly started putting together some things for my new mantle. 
(Which I love and is not made of 2 x 4's)
Not very talented with decorating a mantle, but it's better than it was. 

Handy Hubby decided that the inside of our fireplace looked really old. 
Um, it was built in the 70' is old. 
So, he got this:

Heat resistant paint for engines. 
(Can you tell I'm married to a mechanic???)
It's good up to 2,000 degrees. 

So there ya go. 

Ready to see the final reveal? 
I surely am because I'm sick and stinkin' tired of this project by now. 
I'm ready to have things back in order and clean.

  4. Fireplaces look nice and they help in keeping the place warm. I like them and so i included it as a part of construction of my new house. The living space looks creative and royal in a combination with fire place. There are different designs of these available nowadays.
