More weekend reno's

It's been a while since I posted on the weekend reno's. Here was our fireplace the day we bought the house...3 yrs ago...little lucca in the baby seat Pre-Knitting...in a store bought hat!




And the after...



Dad gave me a hand grouting in the fall to finish it off. A couple layers of sealer and we were all set. I love a wood burning fireplace!

What a difference. I married into a family of avid "wood paneling" people....I think you before and after are the best case against it that I have seen. Great work!

Love it! What a difference!

Sorry, that was me above, and for some reason it logged me in as "anonymous" which I most definitely am NOT ;-)

That is gorgeous! You must be pleased! Now you can sit in front of the fire, put your feet up, enjoy your favourite beverage and knit!
