We are slowly remodeling the downstairs with our final projects. The next on the list was our fireplace. Where we not have our family room was an old, wood burning fireplace we never used before. The room was a living room and was only a place for Christmas morning and photos. Now it is the hub of our house, so we needed to give it an upgrade.
It took the contractors about a week to do this project. We decided to change from wood burning to an electric fireplace because we didn't feel we would burn the wood on a regular basis in this room (we have three other fireplaces in the house). We love how it turned out.
Here is the before. It wasn't in bad shape, but we just weren't using it.
