The fireplace

The newest project I am working on is the fireplace. As you can see it was plain old white but it will be getting a faux treatment and the wall above is getting a sandstome treatment. the color yous ee is only the foundation coat but already it it looks better. the view you see is the backyard which even has a gate. there are trails back there so once it gets warmer I will be taking walks there and there is even a gazebo at one end. Shayna loves going back there and runninga round as my patio even has a gate. the bird feeder was a gift from Jean Bernard when I arrived! looking forward to the spring when in the front I will have a small garden and teh back I am not sure what will be doing there yet. it still seems like a dream sometimes for a city boy,lol.

What a view you will have in the summer! Quite different than New York, huh? Love that hardwood floor. I can't wait to see the fireplace wall when you get done.
