Fireplace Reveal

So we have almost been in the house for a year and I have shared a couple things in their finished state, which is always hard because you never feel like it is finished! But today I am happy to share our before and after of our mantle.

Little Yellow House: Firehouse Before

Here is our before picture of the living room and mantle. You can see the little mantle was so little that you couldn’t put anything on it. We had to change that immediately. So it took some time but we built out a mantle that was more suitable for decorating!

You can see all the steps on when we built this here.

So since the last post we have done a couple more updates and I am feeling really happy with how it is looking.

There is it – hope you like it. I am having a lot of fun trading out how I decorate it. I feel like every couple of weeks I switch up what is on there, which has been really fun. I haven’t fully landed on the mirror over, but it does look really pretty! The alternative would be some sort of abstract art, which would also be fun. But for now we will use this vintage mirror, it was my grandmother’s. What do you think?

  1. That vintage mirror is so cute! For me personally, I would put a large scale piece of abstract art here. Love the blue and white porcelain – I am a super fan of blue and white!!! Love the transformation of your fireplace – it’s amazing what a coat of white paint can do!
