That’s some really nice work, AND good design. Got any mid-way pictures? I’m curious how you built out the wall to include PVC piping to hide the TV wires.

That really turned that outdated fireplace into something special.
Nice work. The LED’s really are a great touch.

What a difference. Nice work. Aren’t LED lights great? I would use them over most other lighting (for accent). Good job.

-- No matter how many times I measure, I always forget the dimensions before I cut.

Giving a boost to the blah effect of the old fireplace! Great work!

The ‘now’ fireplace looks sleek, modern and clean. What I like about it is that it has ample storage space to display mementos and photos, as well as storage for books. This creates the space as not only to get heat during cold days, but a great place to relax, mingle and spend time with family members. Since I have young children, I would add one feature to secure the fireplace. A grill perhaps that would act as a ‘mini gate’ would be a great temporary addition.

Is the door a pocket door type like the bay area styles at http://caldwells.com/sliding-closet-door-hardware? How you renovate this was really great, the color combination is perfect.
