Thank ya’ Jesus! We have progress…..

We finally have some progress in our remodel!!!  Our fireplace surround and marble tiles were installed today.  The interesting thing about this surround is that it is made of styrofoam, similar to the ceiling beams you may have read about.  This styrofoam is much easier to work with and much more affordable than pouring a concrete form and installing it or wrapping chicken wire around a form and covering it with plaster.  I am ready to light a fire!!  S’mores anyone?

Simply beautiful!

Take a look at the “before” pic of the fireplace and learn about the interior paint for the firebox here.

About hayniedi

What about me? In a nutshell I am a middle-aged interior designer and freelance writer, mother of an amazing 27 year old daughter, wife to my semi-retired lawyer husband and step-grandma to two delicious babies. From my earliest memories I have been fascinated with interior decorating and love to share my passion for beautiful rooms with anyone who will listen. Join me on this blog as my husband and I enter our empty nest years and move back into the first home we bought when we were first married that has been a rental for the past 15 years. I will share our experience with remodeling as well as other ideas and thoughts that I hope will inspire you.
