Fireplace update



My Fireplace is ready to show off.!




It took awhile to finish this project, but finally, I have the after photos...



I never wanted to decorate my house in white because I have three grubby man sized children.
BUT I LOVE THE WAY THIS LOOKS!
I cannot wait to link this to some of the before and after parties.
The chair I reapholstered using dropcloth in the fall.

My father bought all the MDF when he remodeled the office, My husband dreagged it all home for some project or other, but since it stayed in the garage, that meant it was fair game. I bought the crown molding, two pieces at $16 each. I also bought the stencils, paint, and spackle for the emblem, so that was another $20 the stain was in our supplies, and I decorated using stuff from my house, so All together, Besides the time given by my beautiful Sister(s) and all the time I spent getting the stain / paint ratio right, this project came in just over $50.
YEAH!!!
