My wife had always wanted to tile this fireplace, and I thought I liked it the way it was. Once we started into it, she did the tiling and I sanded the old heart of pine dark finish off and ran the router around the coves to clean them up and re stained it.

Then built the columns and routed some trim. It was a fun project to both work on.

From a down home fireplace to the whitehouse look alike. Nice redo.
