A New Look is Coming to My Fireplace

Hello, Hello!

Once again, it's been way too long since I've posted on the blog.  Life is busy with a baby!  My littlest guy is 8 months old today.  How in the world did that happen? That's only 4 months away from his first birthday. WOW!! I can't even believe that!  He keeps me busy. Not just him, but I'm busy with my Etsy shop too, and being a wife and mom to five guys, and lots of little projects.

Anywhoo... Even though I haven't been posting, I have a LOT of posts thought up in my head.  I just haven't gotten around to writing them up. I mean a LOT!  I'm always changing things around in my house and really, since baby Cruz came along, it hasn't changed much.  I'm still moving things around and making some minor changes and some MAJOR ones too...

Today I'm showing you the before photos of a major change that's happening in my family room.  I'm so excited, because demo has started on my fireplace wall and soon and very soon I will have a brand new look in my family room!

I've been dreaming of having my fireplace finished, with mantle and all, since the day we moved in, 6 1/2 years ago. 

Christmas is right around the corner and I can't wait to hang stockings from a real mantle this year! I'm going to be able to, because I'm getting a mantle and cultured stone in the next few days.


These are the before photos...

 ...and this is what it looked like yesterday before we started demo:
 and...
... this wall is ready for a facelift ;)

The tile has been removed (I'll show you photo's in another post.) The opening will be framed in tonight, the mantle will go on tomorrow and the stone will go up on Thursday.

I'm SOOOOO excited!

Did you notice that my coffee table is in the process of being painted too? I WILL finish that soon.

Oh yeah and above the fireplace is partly painted too.  Before my hubby & I decided that now is a good time to get the mantle and stone done, I thought about painting the whole thing.  I was considering painting the tile too, but then I got the ok to do it up right.

Oh and the backs of my bookcases, those are 1/2 painted too.  I decided that I better wait till the stone goes up before deciding on a color for the backs of those. 

Yep, that's how I roll sometimes! A million, 1/2 finished projects.

This fireplace wall project should be done by the weekend and I will definitely be showing you the finished product.

May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,
DaNita

  1. Oh, how exciting! I love a mantle for the stockings alone plus it will be fun to decorate the rest of the year too! Loved the coffee table in the darker wood (looks very rich!) however I am sure it will look beautiful when you get everything done. Would love to see a picture of the new baby.

    1. Thanks! Yes, I am excited to decorate the mantle all through the year too! The coffee table would class with my mantle, 'tis why I'm painting it :) I will get some pictures of our newest little guy on here soon.
