Fireplace: Check

Our first project to check off the list is done–the new surround is in and it looks great!  We’ve still got to decide what to do with the wood–stain it or paint it.  The original plan had been to go with MDF and paint it to save a bit on the budget, but they had to order that piece in and it would have put us back a couple more weeks.  The oak surround wasn’t much more money-wise, and since it gave us the flexibility of choosing stain or paint we decided to go that route.  We probably won’t make a decision on the finish until we get a little further into other projects, but the bulk of the work is done and it looks soooooo much better than the old surround!

    Very nice. There are many interior designers that I would like to name right now, but I can only think of clothing designers that would appreciate the clean lines and classic color scheme. I watch too much HGTV.
