All the Frills: House Upgrades

So I’ve been doing some work on my house. The next big planned project is painting but, in the interim, I installed some new light fixtures and also painted our fireplace. I always really disliked the tile that was around it and am super happy with how the job turned out!

Yayy!! Looking so good! I can't wait until I have a house of my own to decorate. It's not the same when you live with boys who are messy...

I really LOVE all the work you've done to your home so far! The fireplace, man-- it looks so great! I am gonna be stealing your modular bookshelf decoration when I get my own place!

I love what you did with your fire place - hell, I love that you have a fireplace. I have dreams of a home with a fireplace. It doesn't have to work. It just has to be in my home. One day ;)
xox,

The before picture of the fireplace makes me shudder because that's what we had too. Our apt is from 1900 and someone had the bright idea to tile the fireplace with ugly 80's beige tile!! I painted it white because it was driving me bonkers!
