Looky! A Before and After

I'm at it again.  Just can't leave well enough alone.  This time the fireplace was my victim.  If my house were not swimming in oak and the fireplace were the only piece of oak in the house, I would have left it.  It was pretty enough.  But it got lost in all the oakness.  It was crying for help.  It just wanted to be noticed, to stand out.  I hope I made it happy.



I used a miter box and a caulking gun for the first time.  I primed and painted and nailed and glued.  AND I did it without any help from the husband.  Power to the Girl!
