Project #1: Fireplace

I completed my first home project!
The fireplace was dying for a facelift!

It was dated and that brass couldn't go soon enough.


My two helpers cleaning the brick...

This is what it looked like in the room BEFORE. Obviously we didn't have all our decor up (hence the mirror standing up in the corner)


I'm so happy with the finished product and the amazing difference it makes in the room! 

 This is what our family room looks like right now. The mantle decor isn't complete, but I'm so happy with how it turned out! 

While painting the fireplace, I decided to go ahead and paint the 10 buck tv stand I found on craigslist.

It was brown. 

I can't wait to tackle more home projects! 
Thanks for sharing in this amazing home-owning journey we're on!

Love seeing your new house and projects. Keep up the great work.

Coming to Colorado July 1-12 for a what I call a "business trip" to see if we will retire to Fort Collins in 2 years.

99.9% sure this is the place!!!

Would love to see you and of course your family and that sweet Mom of yours.
