The Fireplace

The past couple weeks, Michael and my Dad have been working on the fireplace. We had tile around the fireplace, but we wanted stone from the floor to the ceiling with a mantle that matched the kitchen cabinets. I forgot to take a "before" picture, but here is the progression of the fireplace reno.

After ripping the tile off, Michael began framing the new area. We added about 8 inches on each side.
Putting up the drywall.

Scratch coat.

Putting together the puzzle pieces! It took a long, long time to see results. Each piece has to be fitted and matched with the ones around it. I didn't realize how much work it actually was!!

Levi's working too!

Almost there!!

Michael and Dad did such a great job!! It looks fantastic!
