Biggest & Best Project Yet!

Hi All,
This is our biggest and best project to date.  It is not finished, but I couldn’t wait to share.
For those of you who are just tuning in, we are at our cottage in Northeast Indiana for the next 30 days.  We went through a major remodel/renovation last year (I will share that soon).  This year our projects are just for pleasure.
Without lots of rambling, let me show you what we started with.

This is our fireplace.  It is painted cement block and is the focal point in the main living area.
And now:
Cottage Fireplace 027
Can you believe it?
Hubby and I completed this part in 5 hours today!  It still amazes me.
Want another look?
Cottage Fireplace 026
How about this?

Please note: this is not complete, but I could not wait to share!
I will share the details shortly.  Until then, I am just going to sit here and stare in shock that we were able to do this.
What do you think?
XO-
Shannon

This is on my to-do list!! Great work and I can't wait to see how you did it. I'm encouraged by the five hour timeframe, I'll tell you that! :-) Well done!

This makes the room, and I can't wait to see the walls whitewashed to go with it. It really has that lake cabin look now. I can't wait to see what it looks like next week when I come back up. If you want me to bring you some paint/stain for the walls let me know. I'd be glad to deliver. Finish the projects and then get in plenty of R&R the rest of your time!!

That was a lot of work! Beautiful job! If you like vintage then come see my daughter's room.
