white wednesday before & after share ..

excited that the gathering room is moving along in time for Thanksgiving .. thought i would share before and after pics of the fireplace ..

Before ...



After ...



i will be stripping the tile around the fireplace after the first of the year .. the concrete planters to the side will get rosemary trees .. the wild asters in the jar on the mantle grow wild in the back of our lot .. the topiary were gifts from sherry .. love the fireplace logs .. i am going to add some petrified rocks i have aroudn the front to hide the base of the log unit ..

hope you have a beautiful day ..

love ya'
troy

  3. It's beautiful - it's amazing what a coat of white paint can do, isn't it??

    you called it the "gathering" room.
    that's the first time i've heard anyone call a room the gathering room except for me.

  6. Wow! Beautiful job. Love the walls, too. We use to have a house with paneling that I always wanted to paint but never did until we were ready to sale.
