Well, it is not finished yet, but thought I would show you what they did with the fireplace today. Isn’t this new mantle beautiful? It will be painted white like the other trim in the house, but I think it really helps to break up the brick wall, don’t you? This is a BEFORE shot of the fireplace just after we took possession of the home. It makes me cringe that this mantle was just being held up with about 4 nails! All of the kids sat under that mantle many times prior to this discovery. It is a good thing that the contractor found out about it…poor little sweetie could have gotten squished!
And another angle of it…much better! Attached to the wall and everything…
Also, did you notice the wood floors? they will be sanded and finished in the next couple of weeks after the kitchen cabinets arrive.
There’s more to come so check back in soon!Kristine
