Hey guys! I am finally getting around to getting my Fireplace Reno up on the blog! I am going to share lots of pics of before and afters! I love the way that it looked before but I live in a trilevel and I can always use more storage. I have seen some of the most amazing fireplace renovations and just knew I could utlize my space better. Here is a before picture of my fire place . Just a standard 1970’s brick fireplace. 

I painted the whole thing white, and I actually really liked it but I wanted a space that I could store wood. So my mind automatically went to a built in style. Then I made the mistake of Pinteresting fire place Reno’s and man, there is a lot of talent out there #amirightladies

So this is the Pinterest inspiration that I found and fell in love with. I loved the clean lines and simple look and of corse the white.

I also loved the idea of it taken up this whole entire wall. It makes such a statement now.

there was a lot of framing involved, I mean a lot, and a lot of kids twirling on their heads 😂

Getting close!! The built in part on the left is for wood storage!!! I was so excited to actually have a place to store wood. So at any time we could just leisurely make a fire. 

All finished! I started this project exactly a week before it had to be done because I wanted to take our Christmas pictures in front of it. Let me tell you, I did that intentionally so I would actually get it done and finish it. And work on it even if I wanted to quit. That is some commitment, I was actually very aggravated I did that to myself at the time 😂 But I am so happy it is done, I love it!
