Fireplace Complete

Today the mantel and hearth were installed. It took about two hours to get everything installed and cleaned up. It looks great. The black granite looks almost exactly like the counter top. This is basically it. We're done! It doesn't feel like it!

We have to have the baseboards touched up and painted but that's pretty minor. Our designer now wants to bring in a photographer to shoot the final product. I told her we need to rehang some artwork on the walls but we'd be ready soon.

This last Sunday we put the fireplace to work. It was a blustery day and we were sitting around reading the Sunday paper. The furnace was on but it was one of those days where it was hard to break the chill. So I kicked on the fireplace and it warmed up the living room to a toasty temperature.
