We are sooooo copying our friend's brother's fireplace!!!! In fact, we have the tree we're using for the mantle "drying out" in the front yard!! Praying that this is what we'll be looking at next Christmas!
stunning diy fireplace update. This is the exact lay out of my formel living room with windows & built in shelves on each side. I would never paint my brick or masonry but I love the tv over it, I don't have one at all in that room now. Its used primarily for rest, entertainment when I have large parties and family gatherings and I never wanted a tv for distraction.
