Fireplace wall and painting the oak

 We've been doing a lot of remodeling
and fixing up this 30 year old home we bought last summer,
and there's so much to share here on my blog and I'm so behind!

So I'll just jump in with sharing our fireplace wall.
My husband designed a new mantle, including corbels,
spray painted the brass black,
and I painted the oak built-ins and fireplace.
Here's the 'before'

And here's the finished wall.  Oh, and I painted the entire room.
The final thing to accomplish in this room is new flooring.
A beautiful tile in grays in the area for going in and out
and probably carpet for the rest, also in gray.

I'll be sharing more often now.
...I know I said that before...

Oh Violet! What a beautiful transformation... You and your hubby make a great team.. But I must say, you have done a boat load of work! I wish I had your energy. I could have tackled a project like this 10 years ago, but sadly no more.. BRAVO!

Thank you so much for visiting, it is always such a joy to see you there..

What a transformation and such a showcase for your beautiful works of art
The angel wings so amazingly full of spiritual grace tie in with the stone work, such a compliment to your remolding.
Yes, dear Violet you amaze this wall flanked with builtins to love.

Thank you dear for your beautiful words over at my place.
