Fireplace project progress

Hey ya’ll! I have been keeping busy with projects. We are in the middle of redo-ing our fireplace and I’m already trying to plan our next project. 

Mr. Middlesister wishes I would just sit still, but I told him I ALWAYS have to have a project. It’s how I work. 🙂

So here is an update on our fireplace so far. We re-tiled it ourselves with a small marble subway tile from Lowe’s. It was a total b-word to work with. It kept crumbling when we would go to cut it. 

   Yes, we had to piece the hardibacker together because the insert or the mantle (or both) isn’t straight.  Pre-grout.

We have also started painting it.

  Post-grout, but not siliconed (just made that word up) yet. Here we are with one coat of paint. The color is Kendall Charcoal by Benjamin Moore. 

Next we are planking the wall above the fireplace and siliconing (there I go making up words again) and painting a second coat on the fireplace.

More to come…
