Different kind of design!

I've been pretty busy. Doing what you are probably wondering? Well, I have a major house remodeling project going on. See the picture above? This was our fireplace when we moved into this house about 8 years ago. When we looked at the house and decided to purchase it was keeping in mind that we both hated the fireplace and that was going to be the first thing to go. Well once we moved in and had the carpeting professionally cleaned we found out there were huge issues in the carpeting due to former pets in the home. The only solution was to recarpet the entire house. Definately not our plan and definately not in our budget. So that meant that the fireplace and floor entry tile would need to wait.

Well here we are 8 years later finally getting to it! So I took all the wood off the fireplace and all the tile off the floor. I love home projects! Anyway, we hired a professional to cut the tile off the wall and then replace the drywall behind it. The same guy is also making us a custom fireplace.

The new tile was installed Wednesday and grouted yesterday. I'm not going to give any peeks yet as I want to wait until the fireplace is done which will be sometime this coming week. So pop back over and check for the updates!
