Existing Fireplace Remodel: Guest Remodel

10 August 2010

The Foss family at Little Bits of Bliss has been hard at work redesigning for there new look of their existing fireplace remodel.  It's smok'n hot!

So when we moved into the house one of the major things that was frustrating and really a bugger was the fireplace--- I mean a Sheetrock mantle?? really? Who ever thought those looked good? and the hole for the T.V. didn't fit Dave's "man" T.V. :) So I knew I wanted to change it- but I didn't know what into? I didn't want to spend to much money either or do any major floor plan changes-- So needless to say it sat there forever - I couldn't figure out a way to make it look better-- well a way that both me and Dave could agree on too :)

Here's the Before:

I did immediately paint the walls and trim when we moved in so it looked a little better :)  but I don't have any pictures of that- or how horrible it looked when we had our tv just sitting on the ledge-- with the wires hanging everywhere-- It was great- let me tell ya. :)

Here it is Now:

This was the first project that I didn't really have at least a vague plan for-- We really just flew by the seat of our pants on this one--- One day still looking at the eyesore the next demoing it cuz' I couldn't stand it anymore :)

gotta love a sexy man with a saws-all :)

When we finally figured out kinda what we were gonna do there was some major angle math figuring involved-- all I can say is that I am glad Dave is so smart cuz' I would have never been able to figure it out

We did live with it like this for awhile-- while we tried to figure out how we were gonna finish it :) Fun times- fun times.

But hallelujah-- It's done-- I like it- Our T.V. fits-- and really we spent only about $100 to do it--What do you think yay or Nay on the redesign? :)

I say yay!  I looks great the new fireplace remodel ties in nicely with the dinning and kitchen?  Any other thoughts?

Looks great! I'd love to know how they built the mantle shelf. Our fireplace just has a little brick overhang, and I really need a frugal DIY shelf.

This looks great! Gives me hope that we might be able to do something similar to our TV-Mantle. Great job on this one!

Isn't it amazing what a mantle will do for a fireplace. We redid ours too, and I love it!

an absolute YAY on the redesign!! my favorite part is the square paneling look on top of the tv. ur eyes are immeditaely drawn there and it is such a classic touch. i also love the tile around the fireplace. amazing job.

I love it! I have a corner fireplace I have to put in and I've saved the pics for my project. They did a great job.
