Fireplace Before/After

We are working with a wonderful client who wanted to update her bedroom fireplace. This is what it looked like before ...  it just needed an update and a little love to fit with her bubbly personality!

We picked new tile as well as a mantle. We wanted something soothing, sophisticated and suited to a bedroom. Here is what we found :: penny-round tiles with a hint of shimmer and opalescence.

We topped it off with a gorgeous piece of wood found in Pennsylvania for a mantle. This wood is 300 years old and since that dates back before electric saws, you can see the axe marks on it used to chop it from the tree. It's fantastic and unique.  The gold accents on the fireplace door front were painted with heat safe black paint, so that it blended in. Then we added new pulls. Our client is thrilled! Look for another blog where we style the mantle a bit to add some personality to the room.
