This was the living room before we bought the house.
After the former owners removed their furniture, this room looked so stark.
One of our first projects was to paint the room, build a mantle and remove the green tile that surrounded the fireplace.
Just adding the mantle and hearth really made such a huge difference in the appearance of the room.
And at Christmas time with a roaring fire :-)
