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That really turned that outdated fireplace into something special.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.

A great makeover! Now your fireplace has a refreshing concept and looks clean and neat. I really like the book shelves you have came up with and the storage benches are really practical in hiding the mess away. I have also read about the false back to hide untidy wirings but never had the chance to actually go through the step-by-step guidelines to DIY one for my house. Such a job well done! Congrats!

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.

Drywall is boards of squeezed gypsum mortar between overwhelming paper. Drywall is otherwise called
plasterboard, wallboard and gypsum board.In examination with other development materials, for example, mortar,drywall is significantly less demanding to work with and this is one major motivation behind why such a large number of representatives and friends proprietors incline toward it. Working with drywall is really 5 to 8 times speedier than utilizing other development materials click to website
