We will be in our house 1 year on February 24th. We LOVE our house, the design, the neighborhood, the yard, it is all great. However, the fireplace is a little out dated. We had to put the picture horse on the fireplace above because the people who owned this house previously built this odd structure in the middle of the fireplace. It is the brownish/orange underneath the picture and there is an outlet in the middle of it. We don't know if they had a T.V. hung there are what the purpose was.
The tiles and the odd "art piece" with the outlet in the middle was removed.
New sheet rock was added
A recessed light was added above
I am grateful that I have such a talented husband that he can tackle most Do it yourself (DIY) projects!
